Subject

Recruitment and retention of students of color at Ursinus College

Description

A one-page typed document recounting the events of the Minority Affairs Committee's March 23, 1989 meeting. The meeting begins with a statement about the goals of the committee (to discuss matters relating to students of color at Ursinus and promote in the community "the fact that Ursinus is committed to ethnic and cultural diversity"). The specific topics covered that day included the "Ursinus Seeks Diversity" brochure, an emphasis on admissions and recruitment, means of identifying and accessing students of color in order to recruit, and the need for a revised admission statement which would include increasing the proportion of students of color as a part of the community and college-wide agenda. There is mention of the need for education campus-wide on minority issues, but not much is mentioned in the way of direct plans or deliverables.
