Summary

The proceedings of a regional working conference on educational and employment equity for Blacks and Hispanics in New England is presented. The purpose of the conference was to address the nine findings and 20 recommendations set forth in a recent New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) report, "Equity and Pluralism," which warns that while New England is touted as the higher education capital of the world, opportunity is limited for Blacks and Hispanics hailing from New England. Panels were titled as follows: "Pluralism in the Workplace,""Supporting Educational Achievements of Blacks and Hispanics,""Creating Pluralism on Campus,""How Television, Radio, and Newspapers Can Nurture Minority Aspirations and Achievements,""Government's Role in Promoting Minority Advancement," and "Helping Community College Graduates Move on to Four Year Colleges." Two addresses were "The Competitiveness and Change in New England Business" (Badi Foster) and "Quality and Opportunity: The Unfinished Agenda" (Paul Tsongas). Plans of action for Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont are included. Three appendices are: a summary of the findings and recommendations of the NEBHE's Task Force on Black and Hispanic Student Enrollment and Retention in New England, January 1980; a list of events and papers presented at the Summit on Educational and Employment Opportunity in New England; and a list of the members of the NEBHE Task Force on Black and Hispanic Student Enrollment and Retention in New England.
