Transcript Was not taken up at Board meeting CONFIDENTIAL Memorandum to: President Hoffman From: Patrick J. Nicholson Subject: Memorandum to Governing Board Date: July 25, I962 As discussed, I am attaching the draft of a suggested statement regarding integration policies in I962-I963. You could simply read the first five paragraphs as part of your "oral agenda'1 at the September 25, 19^2 meeting of the governing "board, and then continue with the actual policy statement in quotes. The final paragraph of the material in quotes is optional, as is the concluding paragraph thanking the B/G for its cooperation and assistance. The University has now enrolled its first colored students, one for the first summer term, and three in the second six weeks. All were at the graduate level. This important step was accomplished under the general policies set forth by the governing board, without any incident and with an absolute minimum of publicity. We are naturally pleased with these developments, and with the overall situation regarding a potentially difficult problem. It is the feeling of the administration that the University should continue at present on the same sound basis, accepting a few highly qualified, carefully selected Negro graduate students for the Fall, 1962 semester. The number would be increased moderately over the total enrolled this summer. Looking toward future sessions, and especially to official entrance into the state system on September 1, 1963> however, we believe that the University should consider a somewhat different policy after the current Fall semester. This policy would be merely a normal and reasonable expansion of existing procedures, to reflect the somewhat different situation affecting a completely public institution. The administration recommends the following policy, to be publicly announced immediately with the understanding that it would actually become effective in 19^3: "The University of Houston, as a final stage in its continuing study of integration, will now accept qualified colored students at all levels. This follows the successful completion of earlier stages in which colored students were accepted first at the graduate level. "Now that this higher priority need for graduate instruction for Negroes is being met, it is felt that we can also admit qualified undergraduate students. Their requirements have not been so pressing because they could receive necessary instruction at other institutions.
