15 p. 

The most critical issue that the US must face is whether people of all races can work together and create a society in which equal opportunity genuinely exists for all. The racism practiced throughout the US has produced potentially destructive forces that could lead to a second civil war between outraged minority groups and the rest of society. The college campus, which is in the center of the struggle, must seek solutions for some of the problems of race. The University of California at Riverside (UCR) has made a start in this direction. The Educational Opportunity Program provides financial help, special counseling, and tutorial assistance to needy minority group students. UCR also has a special admission policy for students who do not meet regular entrance requirements but who have a good chance for academic success. The number of non-academic employees from minority groups has increased by nearly 50%, 6 non-whites have been appointed to high level decision-making positions, and there are about 4 or 5 faculty members from minority groups. The problem is more difficult in the field of academic personnel because of the degree of specialization required. This illustrates the long-range aspect of the race problem which will be solved only when more non-white students become qualified and decide to make a career of college and university teaching. Other current and future UCR commitments to the urban crisis are discussed. (WM)
