Recruitment, Academic Support, Financial Aid, and Some Interrelated Considerations.
Wilson, Charles Z.
This paper examines current program efforts at the University of California, Los Angeles, which are designed to meet the needs of minority students, particularly Negroes and Mexican-Americans. Recruitment of these groups, traditionally barred from regular college admission, has been pursued with the help of minority students who go into the community to provide a peer group setting in which to tell the story of the University. A High Potential Program, initiated with selected culturally-deprived freshmen on a ten-to-one student-teacher ratio, is designed to ease the students into regular University courses at a rate comfortable for each student. Financial assistance is provided to students, student aides, and recruiters. Programs of this nature point up the need for a different type of academic personnel--one who can establish deep and genuine relations with people. (CJ)
