Minority admissions by Robert Leslie Bailey( Book )

6 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The changing role of admission policies and practices as higher education institutions deal with the problems of miniority acess and admissibility is examined in this book. Sections dealing with admission requirements, academic prediction, and major problems in admission practices provide background information on the workings of student selection. A history of minority preference in admission is presented, and testing and the race relevance are examined as an important factor in the admissibility of minorities. Policy issues are discussed in the case for/against minority preferences, constitutional and legislative strategies, and long-range issues, including the role of an admissions policy in meeting societal needs. Suggestions are offered for designing an action implementation plan to make possible minority access and admission in accordance with the Bakke decision. It is concluded that higher education institutions should pursue actively early outreach programs that parallel or supplement normal admission procedures. Appended are the texts of the California Supreme Court decision on Bakke, the brief filed by the University of California to the U.S. Supreme Court, and an extensive bibliography. (Lbh)

Information systems and technological decisions : a guide for nontechnical administrators by Robert Leslie Bailey( Book )

10 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trends affecting information systems and decisions of college administrators are traced, and specific types of technologies currently available are reviewed. Information systems support routine operations decisions or planning and policy decisions. The primary advantage of computerized information systems is rapid access to data and rapid manipulation and comparison of data. In addition, computerized systems can perform many different applications or functions, such as automated spreadsheet programs and financial modeling and planning programs. Examples are provided of how the new technologies can be used to achieve financial savings and greater efficiencies, and of the three sizes of computers commonly used in academic administration: large-scale or mainframe computers, minicomputers, and small business or microcomputers. Attention is also directed to word processing, copying machines, micrographics, and three major forms of equipment communication (electronic mail, telecommunications, and networks). Cost benefits of computing equipment include the application of computer logic to the gathering of primary information and the usefulness of computers to professional staff. Computerized systems are especially efficient for registration and transcripts operations. Types of computer crimes are noted. An extensive bibliography is included. (SW)
