Annual Report 1971-72 to the President if the University of Maryland from UMBC by Calvin B.T. Lee

Description

In his first report to Dr. Elkins, the head of the university system administration, Dr. Lee presented a vision for UMBC that was characterized by rapid growth. Already he could say that the number of full time students had risen substantially in just one academic year. Moreover, the diversity of the student body as well as the ranks of faculty and administration were also expanding. He touted the interdisciplinary curriculum that was being developed and singled out the Afro-American Studies program for special attention. Unlike�other programs, UMBC combines African Studies and the African Diaspora, i.e., the Black Experience in the Americas and African Heritage,� he said. In summary, he was: Appreciative of the past six years, optimistic in the present, and carefully planning for the future�� He was looking thirty years into the future toward the year 2000.
