The recruitment of minority students from high schools and community/junior colleges presents a major problem for higher education institutions, especially those which are predominantly white. Overcoming the barriers - real and perceived - to minority student college enrollment and graduation is an ongoing endeavor, requiring the motivation, cooperation, understanding and mutual trust of students and universities. In some important ways, the nature of those barriers has changed. No longer is the problem one of legal access. That goal was achieved through the long and difficult struggles of the Civil Rights Movement (especially by the NAACP), culminating in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
