Flamer Proposal and Analysis, Minority Recruitment and Retention, 1989

Subject

Recruitment and retention of students of color at Ursinus College

Description

This is a compilation of primary sources all related to Jenneen Flamer's 1989 proposals for minority recruitment and retention. Jenneen Flamer was the Admission Counselor and Minority Student Adviser at Ursinus College in 1989. The first page is a memo from Ms. Flamer to President Richard P. Richter explaining the importance of programs which foster self-identity to make minority students more comfortable on campus. The following four pages are her extended proposal of changes to implement on campus - namely for there to be four new positions to help with minority recruitment and retention. The next page is Richard Richter's analysis of Flamer's proposal, in which he supports increasing attention towards the tasks Flamer has outlined but not the addition of specific titles or new full time positions. He asks in handwritten pen at the top of his analysis for a colleague's input. This input makes up the last page. While the author of this last analysis is unknown, he or she mainly agrees with Richter's thoughts.
