Paper Presented At National Meeting
Dr. James E, Lyons
Dr. James E. Lyons, Assistant to the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs at Fayetteville
State University recently received the honor of having his paper selected for presentation by the
Association for Institutional Research, Boulder Colorado, at the St. Louis Forum Meeting, April 30,
1975. This is a summary of his paper entitled: THE FUTURE OF THE POST-SECONDARY
EDUCATION FOR BLACK AMERICANS” by James E. Lyons, Ph.D. Fayetteville State University,
Fayetteville, North Carolina.
While considerable research and writing has been done concerning the black eresence on the
predominantly white campus, and the historical value of the traditionally black colleges and
universities, very little concrete research has been done concerning the future of post-secondary
education for black people in this country.
“Since the Supreme Court Decision of 1954, the predominantly white institutions have begun to
take a new look at their admission policies toward black students. The result has been a tremendous
mcrease in the number of black high school graduates attending white colleges and universities
Prior to 1954 black colleges enrolled two-thirds of all black students attending colleges, but today
these institutions enroll just one-half.
“Many of the predominantly white institutions had not enrolled any black students, but due to the
federal pressure to dismantle segregated systems of higher education, and community pressure, in
1968 they enrolled an unprecedented number of them. Colleges and universities throughout the nation
and representing every section of the nation, began to recruit the black student and nearly 20,000
black students entered predominantly white institutions that year. The midwestern schools appear to
have taken the lead, perhaps as a result of the large number of leading public institutions in that
area. Surprisingly enough, the south followed very closely behind.
“Civic, community, and civil rights leaders applauded this trend during its early stages because
the doors were finally opened for black students. With the tremendous amount of state aid going into
these institutions, nearly everyone was happy that black high school graduates could now make a
“It is doubtful that many educators really anticipated the effect that the recruitment of black
students by white colleges would have on the enrollment and the future of the black institutions. The
large number of black students who use to leave Boston, Newark, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Detroit,
and journey to Kentucky State, Tennessee State, Central State, North Carolina A & T , and Morgan
State, now found that they could stay at home and attend Boston University, Temple, Rutgers, New
York University, Harvard, and Yale. Southern black students used to find that Florida A, & M.,
Alcorn A. & M., Mississippi Valley State, and Texas A. & M., were their only options. Today, black
students are enrolled at the University of Alabama, the University of Mississippi, Florida’ State
University, and the University of Georgia.
“Many astute black college administrators saw the “hand-writing on the wall”, and realized that
the increase in the recruitment of black students by predominantly white institutions posed the
threat of an admission crisis at their institutions. When this new phenomenon was combined with
increased tuition costs and-or percentage resitrictions on out-of-state students at some institutions,
the message was clear; either recruit more white students or “go out of business”.
“The admission of white students resulted in furor on some black campuses. Many students,
faculty, alumni, administrators, regents, and other interested individuals began to visit, wire, call,
and write the presidents of these institutions begging them to stop admitting white students. Alumni
organizations held meetings, students threatened to strike, and many faculty members expressed
open hostility at the faculty meetings. The situation grew worse as the percentage of white students
on some black college campuses grew to nearly fifty per cent.
“It is important to understand that the opposition to the white presence, in most cases, was not a
racial attack, but one of protectiveness. The black college has been essential in the moral, religious,
social, and educational experience of black people. It has performed a social role for the black man in
the American society, that no other institution could ever have accomplished. It has been primarily
responsible for the maintenance of the black tradition in this country.
“It now appears that black post-secondary education is being threatened on the one hand, by the
return to more conservative admission policies and the near complete elimination of financial aid for
black students on the white campuses; and on the other hand, by the possible phasing out of the
historically black colleges and universities as they once existed. Institutional researchers can and
should take the lead in studying the black post-secondary education phenomenon, and all of its im
