Statement of Purpose: Puget Sound Regional Minority Affairs Consortium--PSRMAC.
Brock, O. Lee
In 1967, a group of minority community members and faculty of the various community colleges in the Puget Sound Region banded together in an attempt to make their institutions more responsive to their communities and students. Out of their first meetings emerged a cooperative effort by the involved institutions to improve and expand services and programs to meet the educational needs of Asian American, black, Chicano, and Native American students and their communities. The membership of the Puget Sound Regional Minority Affairs Consortium (PSRMAC) is now composed of 12 college presidents, the campus Minority Affairs Directors, and four educational program specialists for minority education. PSRMAC facilitates six college functions: (1) meaningful career placement for minority students; (2) the recruitment of minority faculty, administrators, staff, and students; (3) the development of ethnic studies courses; (4) the development of programs to maximize the academic success of minority students; (5) the development of relevant supportive services for minority students; (6) establishment of PSRMAC sponsored programs, including tutorial service, prevocational training, and counseling. Special functions of, and programs sponsored by PSRMAC are described, and directions for the future are recommended. (Author/NHM)
