Compendium Series of Current Research, Programs and Proposals. Number 3: Recruiting Disadvantaged Students.
Shulman, Carol Herrnstadt
This compendium contains responses to a questionnaire sent to directors and investigators of college and university recruiting programs. The responding institutions cited the desire to make higher education accessible to those excluded either by restrictive admissions policies or financial hardship as the primary reason for recruiting minority or disadvantaged students. Most thought personal interviews the best means to determine potential academic success, although test scores are not entirely discounted. Usually, recruitment is carried out at the community level through agencies such as Project Talent and Upward Bound. The compendium presents short descriptions of recruitment methods of 54 colleges and universities. (WM)
