For policymakers, college and university officials, and researchers who want to know how institutions have successfully promoted the participation and retention of African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans, this is an essential resource. This book presents a model for achieving both quality and diversity on campus based on the success of 10 historically white universities that have exceeded the average number of minority graduates for their states and the nation. Also included is a discussion of the process and instruments needed to assess and improve the environment provided for minority student participation and advancement. The result is a highly informative, often dramatic examination of the issues, pressures, and implications any institution will encounter as it seeks to promote diversity.
