Minority Education in Arizona's Universities.
Wood, John J.
One of the working papers in the final report of the Arizona Board of Regents' Task Force on Excellence, Efficiency and Competitiveness, this report describes a study evaluating the effort by Arizona's universities to recruit and graduate minority students. Current outcomes and recent trends are noted along with the general strengths and limitations of current efforts. Information is provided on many recommendations, including the following: administrative policymaking and the organization of minority education; recruiting and enrollment management (covering the minority student recruitment pool, current enrollment and trends, and underrepresentation); retention (e.g., minority student persistence and graduation rates, degrees awarded to minority students, and early intervention); and role models (faculty and staff hiring, evaluation, and retention). Demographic projections of Arizona's population indicate a dramatic increase in the percentages of Hispanics and American Indians within the next decade. The universities have expanded their minority student recruitment and retention programs recently, but the overall outcomes are unacceptable. Two appendices include the framework questionnaire and the Madison Plan executive summary (describing the University of Wisconsin-Madison's success). Contains 13 tables and 2 figures. (SM)
