In 1982, the first national conference was held to address the issues facing black administrators in predominantly white postsecondary institutions. This volume contains the conference's keynote addresses as well as the nearly 50 individual papers presented. The papers are divided into the following topical areas: (1) economic retrenchment, Federal cutbacks, and their impact on programs affecting black people; (2) the difficulties experienced by black administrators who must meet simultaneous and often conflicting demands from blacks and whites at their institutions; (3) black mobility in higher education; and (4) organizational contributions to stress among black administrators at white institutions. Appended are the conference schedule, rosters of the National Advisory Committee to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Association of Black Administrators and of the MIT conference planning committee, and a list of the more than 600 conference participants.
