72 p. 

The Thirteen-College Curriculum Program (TCCP) is a massive, joint effort by a group of black colleges and the Institute for Services to Education (ISE) to develop active, relevant, and workable educational programs for students enrolled in predominantly black colleges. The TCCP was initiated the summer of 1967 by the Thirteen-College Consortium (TCC). The TCCP has subsequently been adopted by additional groups of colleges. This document presents a progress report of the TCCP, first by explaining the TCCP, then describing its effort to use teachers to develop their own class materials, and the effort of the TCCP to disseminate teacher's evaluation and attitudes of the program. The fifth section contains program results, including: socioeconomic background of students, retention in college and grade performance; program outcomes represented by academic test performance and changes in personality; attitude, personality, and developmental results; attitudes of graduating seniors toward their freshmen year; and the impact on students and teachers as perceived by teachers. The growth of the program is discussed in the sixth section. Appendices include a catalog of materials, a description of the 1971 summer workshop, and cycles of development of the TCCP. (Author/PG)
