Transcript THE UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON Inter-Office Memorandum rf\sl*£-~~ty -\*4*ji T0 Dr. Philip G. Hoffman, President FROM Ramon A. Vitulli, Registrar DEPT- DATE January 15, 1962 SUBJECT Admission of Negro Applicants Pursuant to our recent conversation, the following is the information ■which you requested. In the year 1961, the Office of Admissions received approximately 175 inquiries which were made either "by tele]tfpne or in person by Negroes. In addition to this number, letters r&fffiratttdg admission were sent by me to 12 domestic applicants and to 21 foreign Applicants. Based on the assumption that as a fully State supported institution the University will be required to admit qualified Negroes in the fall of 1963 and thereafter, I recommend that we admit qualified Negroes in the fall of 1962 or before. 1. The transition to integration will be accomplished with less confusion and publicity of a nature which could be harmful to the institution and the student body. Because of the present high tuition, the numbers seeking admission prior to 19&3 would be considerably smaller than the numbers who will seek admission beginning in the fall of 1963. 2. Because of the fact that integration in this manner would be accomplished without legal action or coercion, public sentiment is likely to be more favorable if this is a quiet decision. 3. The University will have the opportunity to study problems which might result from integration and to study the academic performance of Negroes. Prior to such time as the institution becomes integrated, I recommend that a study be conducted with regard to the admission of foreign Negro students. Because such students may be expected to have lived in a totally different culture and society, we may be faced with unique problems.
