Minority Programs in Higher Education: Alternatives to the Revolving Door.
Colston, James A.
National Project II: Alternative to the Revolving Door is a project designed to evaluate and refine existing programs for low-achievers. Under sponsorship of the Fund for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education, the project was opened to postsecondary institutions throughout the country which felt they were doing a commendable job of meeting the needs of disadvantaged students. Of the 225 institutions applying to the Fund under the program, only ten were selected as having developed an exemplary open door program. The selected institutions included four two-year colleges: Bronx Community College (Bronx, N. Y.), Oscar-Rose Community College (Midwest City, Oklahoma), Southeastern Community College (Whiteville, N. C.), and Staten Island Community College (Staten Island, N. Y.). This report describes the exemplary programs at these four two-year colleges. It reports on the kinds of remediation courses offered, the administrative organization of the program, the enrollment capabilities, methods of staffing, sources of funding, and the evidences of program success.
