Martin Luther King Program: A Support System for Minority Students.
Jones, Elnetta Griffin; And Others
This guidebook describes the Martin Luther King Program at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, a program expressly created to provide services and resources to assist the minority student in coping with any adjustment problems that may be entailed in entering a predominantly white university in a rural community. The university's supplemental orientation program for minority students is briefly described and a schedule of activities is listed. This is followed by the school's academic calendar for 1991-92. Next, the university's mentoring program is explained, including: the mentor-initiated contacts for the school's fall 1991 and spring 1992 academic year; the responsibilities associated with both the mentors and mentorees; and strategies for effective mentoring. The guidebook then discusses counseling, academic advising, and the academic monitoring processes. The last two sections of the guidebook: (1) list and briefly describe the university's clubs and organizations of special significance to minority students, and (2) list the administrative and mentoring staff and the academic deans and undergraduate departments of the school and provide descriptions, locations, and purposes of the various campus services. Contains a 6-item bibliography. (GLR)
