Description:

This 126-page report, received by University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson on August 20, 1969, details the findings of an ad hoc committee on university racial policies between 1968 and 1969. The committee's findings and recommendations focused on six specific areas: (1) registration of black students, (2) housing of minority students, (3) social and intellectual climate for minority students, (4) employment policies, (5) relationships of curriculum to racial matters, and (6) special programs sponsored by the university. Included is discussion of day to day issues as well as such controversies as the food service workers' strike of 1968. Recommendations include minority student, faculty, and staff recruitment, graduate student involvement in housing issues, consideration of curriculum changes, and attention to the Upward Bound program. The original proposal for the committee was a result of Upward Bound having moved away from UNCG, accusing faculty and staff of racial discrimination. The report also includes four appendices containing supporting documentation and related material on enrollment of African American students, housing black students, the Food Service Workers' Strike, and a proposed African and Afro-American studies joint curriculum with North Carolina A&T State University. The documents in these appendices are included here as separate entries.
