The Antioch New Directions Program. A Report to the Antioch Community and to the Board of Trustees from the Steering Committee to Increase Antioch's Pluralism.
Antioch Coll., Yellow Springs, OH.
This document is an intermediate planning report of the Antioch New Directions Program. This program will direct much of the energies and resources of Antioch College, Ohio toward achieving the parallel aims of student pluralism and social change. Described in this report are assessments of methods and tasks to be accomplished for these dual objectives. To insure student pluralism, a minimum of 80 low-income, minority group working class students will be admitted each year, beginning in 1971. A comprehensive program of academic, personal, and financial supportive services and a full-scale academic program centered around the problems of minority and oppressed peoples will be instituted to help these students succeed in college. A number of research activities, focused on the identification and solution of social problems, will be directed in large measure by people from low-income and minority backgrounds, and a major fund raising campaign will be launched to finance this program.
