Description

This "Ursinus Seeks Diversity" brochure, distributed in 1989, contains a collection of lists and information which are specifically marketed towards students from diverse backgrounds (as stated on the second page: "For Students From Diverse Backgrounds: A Book of Lists"). The lists contain information on the school's fields of study, activities, student demographics, scholarships, and financial aid, among others. It also lists the names of the two Minority Student Advisers at the time: Ms. Jenneen A. Flamer and Mr. Anthony D.J. Brankar. The brochure was created in 1989 during President Richter's focus on recruitment and retention of students of color, and begins with the statement that Ursinus was founded 125 years ago with a provision in its Constitution that "no student shall be excluded on account of race or religion."
