The Recruitment and Retention of Minority Trainees in University Affiliated Programs--Hispanics.
Hickey, Carol A.; Solis, Delia
This monograph addresses the recruitment and retention of Hispanic-Americans in University Affiliated Programs (UAP), which train personnel for the provision of health, education, and social services to people with developmental disabilities. It is designed to assist UAP faculty and staff to develop a comprehensive plan to increase the participation of Hispanic-Americans. The monograph discusses ethnic identifiers and cultural terms of reference, demographics of the Hispanic population, educational experiences of Hispanics, and Hispanic underrepresentation in the health and social sciences. A number of model strategies for recruitment and retention are described, including institutional commitment and leadership, faculty commitment and sensitivity, recruitment of minority faculty, and parental involvement. Final sections discuss program evaluation and monitoring and present summary implications for UAPs. Appendices contain a list of 55 references; a bibliography of 19 additional items; a list of Hispanic higher education associations and related organizations; and descriptions of model programs in the areas of intervention, organization, and speech/language pathology and audiology with a bilingual emphasis.
