Policy on Minority Participation and Diversity.
Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board, Olympia.
This policy statement is established to achieve equitable levels of participation for people of color and to create higher education environments in which diversity is valued and promoted within the state of Washington. It presents recommended activities directed at four-year institutions to increase their minority participation, as well as providing measurable and accountable statewide goals for minority participation and achievement and diversity in the public higher education system. These goals are outlined in five areas: enrollment, retention, academic completion, employment, and institutional climate. Recommended action activities include providing core programs, establishing special admissions programs, establishing programs to improve access, requiring and supporting culturally diverse courses, working with local school districts to develop early outreach programs, and promoting affirmative action programs. Attached is a copy of Resolution No. 91-5 of the Higher Education Coordinating Board for the state of Washington. (GLR)
