Title

"Strategic Approaches to Multiculturalism in Higher Education"

Subject

Recruitment and retention of students of color at Ursinus College

Description

A one-page typed document encouraging the school to adapt new strategies for minorities to be able to obtain a higher education. The document begins with exhibiting the effects of having a diverse strategic approach influenced by a conference at Villanova University attended by the contributors of this document. The document brings up the suggestion of having a three-credit course that deals with racism. There should also be a new faculty member to take the role of a Minority Adviser to head up this new approach to a more diverse campus. This is an important position because it will not only help with working exclusively with students of color but also as a push for student programs to mature and evolve in a respecting and appreciating the merit of diversity on campus.
