Subject

Recruitment and retention of students of color at Ursinus College

Description

On May 23, 1968, Linda Richtmyre writes in The Ursinus Weekly
illustrating the necessity to actively acknowledge and the act of seeking after "the prospect of inclusion of any Negro girls in the next freshman class." There were difficulties seeking out such inclusion through Office of Admission. The financial aid offices of bigger universities would often offer financial grants to promote their diversity, which raised concern to students at Ursinus. The author made apparent of the difficult situation Ursinus and its students try attracting a very marginalized group of people in America: black and female. There was a concern in how the students could "recruit" black women to Ursinus.
