Recruitment and Retention of Minorities: Ten Case Studies from the Neylan Minorities Project.
Fecher, Ann, Ed.
This report presents case studies of 10 colleges participating in the Neylan Minorities Project. The Neylan colleges consist primarily of colleges and universities founded by Catholic communities of religious women. This project's goals were to increase the pool of minority students with potential to move from the secondary level into college; to increase the enrollment of minorities in college, and to increase the proportion of minority students who graduate from these colleges. Using instruments designed by a Neylan member to measure institutional readiness for undertaking minority focused programs and to measure the success of such programs, each participating program evaluated its own success in recruitment and retention of minorities. Participating institutions included the following: Alverno College, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Barry University, Miami, Florida; The College of New Rochelle, New Rochelle, New York; Emmanuel College, Boston, Massachusetts; Heritage College, Toppenish, Washington; Madonna University, Livonia, Michigan; Mount St. Mary's College, Los Angeles, California; Mundelein College of Loyola University, Chicago, Illinois; Our Lady of the Lake University, San Antonio, Texas; the College of Mount Saint Joseph, Cincinnati, Ohio. Copies of the institutional readiness assessment, the faculty staff survey and a student survey are included. (JB)
