Higher Education Opportunities for High-Risk Disadvantaged Students: A Review of the Literature.
Monlouis, Wilma D.
The programs described in the documents chosen for this review might provide some answers for colleges and universities interested in establishing, or already conducting, programs for high-risk disadvantaged students. The success of these programs indicates that institutions are able to extend their educational services to high-risk students and maintain or raise their academic standards. The review describes pre-college preparatory programs, college and university programs, graduate programs, and methods of obtaining financial support for recruiting disadvantaged students and establishing viable compensatory programs. Information consistently lacking in the literature is identified. Most of the reports cited are available from the ERIC Document Reproduction Service. (JS)
