The Student Development Process in Higher Education 72 Page ix Preface Black students are having a very busy and difficult time on campuses throughout the country. Plagued by financial problems, difficulties in studies, personal-social concerns, and racial identity problems, these students are experiencing stress in adapting to and reshaping their social and physical environment, sometimes with sympathetic assistance and sometimes without; and they are having to work through these problems in a process that did not originally take them into account.

Alice was the youngest of eight children produced by a mixed marriage. The father was white; the mother was black. Shortly after she was born, her fatherfor reasons unknown to the staffwas killed by a black man. The family was very "color-conscious" and apparently manifested considerable racial identity confusion. The mother, whom Alice described as having puritanical attitudes, raised the children in an inner-city area. Her secondary education, therefore, was received in inner-city schools, and although Alice appeared to be fairly bright, her overall high school record was slightly below average.

She seemed to need to be affirmed as a black aligned with other black students. Race affected Alice's relationships in other areas, too. In the multiracially staffed supportive service program, Alice related most closely to the black female counselor.
