Adams, Myrna C., Ed.; Wadsworth, Elizabeth, Ed.
This publication reports on a conference convened in November 1987 (with a follow-up for unfinished business in July, 1988) to analyze and propose solutions to the problem of ethnic minority underrepresentation in doctoral programs, with specific emphasis on the role of faculty in reversing this trend. Prefatory material includes a conference summary, synopses of papers, and an overview of the agenda. The text of the keynote address by Arturo Madrid is presented. The main body of the report is divided into four sections corresponding to key issues related to the faculty role in minority graduate scholarship. Each section includes a topic introduction, a commissioned paper or papers, responses, and work group reports. The paper for Issue I, "Access and Outreach," is "The Role of Graduate Faculty in Bringing Democracy to Graduate Education" (Leonard A. Valderde). The paper for Issue II, "Mentoring," is "Faculty Roles in Mentoring Minority Students" (James E. Blackwell). Papers for Issue III, "Canons and Boundaries of Scholarship," are "Communicentric Frames of Reference in the Pursuit of Scholarship: Implications for the Production of Knowledge and the Development of Minority Scholars" (Edmund W. Gordon and David Rollock) and "Integration or Transformation: Minority Scholarship in the Humanities and Arts" (Margaret B. Wilkerson). The paper for Issue IV, "Incentives and Rewards," is "The Role of Faculty in Developing Minority Scholars: Incentives and Rewards" (J. Herman Blake). Addenda include a participant's observations, highlights from the plenaries, recommended policies and actions, and a reaction form. (AF)
