Summary

This paper reports several activities of the Coalition for the Use of Learning Skills (CULS), an academic supportive services program directed to the needs of black and Chicano students at the University of Michigan. The CULS approach assumes that, in order to meet the demands of quality education for black students, the University must be prepared to do certain things it never did previously and to modify some of the things it has always done. The University, from this perspective, is seen as an instrument for the service of the black community (just as it is for its white constituencies). Practically any aspect of black student life is fair game for the attention of CULS if it has direct or indirect connections with the stated goals. The focus is thus upon relatively unique approaches to solving problems experienced universally by black students at large predominantly white institutions. The accounts include analyses of problem situations, rationales for methods, descriptions of techniques, and indicators of their success or failure. The hypotheses and conclusions about fundamental psychological issues underlying black higher education are based on incidental and systematic observations of the program's activities as well as controlled experiments and surveys of students.
