A Proposal of Guidelines for Reordering Educational Processes of Recruitment and Admissions.
Nunez, Rene, Comp.
The premise of this paper (prepared for the Conference on Increasing Opportunities for Mexican American Students in Higher Education, Long Beach, California, May 15-17, 1969) is that all educational institutions have a moral obligation to reorder priorities immediately to meet the needs of Chicano students for relevant, motivated education, enabled by public support and a sensitive appreciation of cultural differences between the majority and the Chicano culture. Set forth are philosophical and practical steps felt necessary for making public education equitable, relevant, and obtainable for Chicano students today. Plans for recruitment and admission of Chicano students are established which include general policy regarding committee formation, proportional representation, and financial support. Guidelines are proposed for 4-year state and private institutions of higher education as well as community colleges. Admissions criteria are delineated for students, faculty, and administrative personnel. The final section deals with sources of recruitment, and discussion centers on the high school, community, and specific sources of student recruitment. Related documents are RC 003 429, RC 003 432, RC 003 433, RC 003 436. (SW)
