Proposed Model for Improving Educational and Professional Opportunities for Journalism Students of Color in a Predominantly White University.
McAllister-Johnson, Pam
In the program described in this paper, a faculty member of color would be hired as a journalism instructor and counselor. As instructor, he would teach a regular beginning writing class and, as a counselor, he would set up group activities with students of color. The two main factors in the program are the instructor-counselor and the group. Other factors are that students of color must meet regular academic requirements, students of color are not stigmatized by the program, and the program can be successful on a very low budget. Strong evidence that the suggested program works are the facts that the enrollment for students of color at Wisconsin increased from 2 to 50; the students make better than average grades; and most of all, they graduated and are qualified for good jobs in journalism.
