Recruitment and retention of students of color at Ursinus College

Description

In this newspaper article, the author writes about the initial treatment that black students being admitted to Ursinus were facing. In specific, he argues about the age of the student and the rights that they have earned and continue to earn. However, Jackson talks about how to more effectively recruit black students, whom recieve a large white shock when they come to an administration like Ursinus. Additionally, Jackson emphasizes that the institution not only "lure" black students into their institution, but that they also carve a path to a degree for prospective black students. He talks about the necessity of the student in general to not stagnate, and to continue to make themselves better off. He lastly mentions programs like Upward Bound that would help the culturally deprived and disadvantaged black students.
