Recruiting: The Problem of Attrition. A Report of the National Dissemination Project for Post-Secondary Education.
Marchbanks, Janice B.
Prepared for the National Dissemination Project to suggest ways in which community colleges might better serve the needs of minority and disadvantaged students, this report discusses outreach and inreach programs. The three purposes of the paper are to: (1) describe the outreach function of recruiting high-risk minority, and disadvantaged students; (2) assess specific problems that produce attrition among these students; and (3) examine inreach programs designed to alleviate the attrition problem. The paper concludes with recommendations for developing inreach and outreach programs to provide educational opportunity for high-risk students. (DB)
