"The Faculty Council Interim Report of the Committee on Enrollment Policy"

This April 1964 report shows the deep conflicts within the CCNY faculty with regards to expanding access to new students. Complaining about limited facilities and student unreadiness, the faculty committee resisted both loosening admissions requirements and admitting many of the transfer students coming from CUNY’s new community colleges. At the same time, the committee supported a limited desegregation program, arguing euphemistically for admission of a “special group of pre-matriculated students to be selected from underprivileged areas.”
