Advisory Committee, Northeastern University, report introduction
and letter of invitation (ca. 1976)
Although Boston's universities
implemented non-discriminatory hiring practices more readily than
its municipal organizations, there were still difficulties. One
of the responses from Northeastern University was the creation of
a Black Recruitment Advisory Committee, which eventually became
an ad hoc committee of the Office of Affirmative Action. The Committee
advised the office on the recruitment, retention, and upward mobility
of African American faculty and staff at Northeastern. From
University Office of the President (Ryder) records.
