This study explores black and ethnic studies programs as a possible means of creating a pool of motivated black students to draw upon for recruitment to medical and dental schools and as an alternative to the traditional liberal arts program. Chapter I discusses the crisis in the health services, the shortage of black doctors, the lack of medical care available to the poor, and the discriminatory admission policies of dental and medical schools. Chapter ii examines the relevance of various admission requirements, state licensing procedures, and the validity of aptitude tests as predictors of success in medical and dental schools. Recent changes in these policies are also discussed. Chapter iii assays the influence on admissions policies of the traditional medical and dental schools models and the conventional breadth requirement. Chapter iv discusses black studies programs as a means for motivating study and service in the health professions, the relevance of behavioral science courses to premedical and predental education of practitioners who must deal with social and psychological aspects of health, and multitrack programs for training health service personnel. A summary of the study and recommendations are presented in Chapter v, and the study's methodology is described in Chapter vi. (Af)

The role of the governing board by Algo D Henderson( Book )

4 editions published between 1967 and 1972 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colleges and universities are corporations governed by boards of trustees. Some are public, and others are private, nonprofit corporations. Boards are usually composed of lay personnel, assumed to be representative of the public who are interested in the welfare of the institution. Legally, the board has complete authority and responsibility for the institution, although in practice much of its authority is delegated to the officers and faculty. The faculty largely determines the program and educational standards, while the trustees are responsible for adequacy of the plant, determination of overall policies, selection of a president, and adequate financing. As the board's executive officer, the president serves in a liaison capacity with the faculty and board. The lay board as found in the united states is unique in higher education. Its advantages are in invovement of representatives of the public in policy formation, overseeing management of the institution, and assisting in adequate financial support. The system is criticized because of lack of educators on the boards and a preponderance of members of the high socioeconomic classes. In spite of the importance of the governing board, its role is not commonly understood by the parties involved. This document is volume 10, number 2 of "agb reports" for october 1967, a publication of the association of governing boards of universities and colleges. (Author/wo)
