Enhancing the Minority Presence in Graduate Education III: Institutional Partnership Programs. The CGS Idea Exchange. Summer Meeting 1991.
Council of Graduate Schools, Washington, DC.
This publication, based on a 1991 Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) "Idea Exchange" meeting, addresses the issue of enhancing minority transition into graduate education, and provides an in-depth look at several types of institutional partnership programs involving universities, corporations, or research laboratories, designed to encourage minority students to go on to graduate school. Specific topics cover: (1) minority enrollment trends in graduate study, (2) improving pipeline transitions for minorities, and (3) laying the groundwork for institutional cooperation in identifying and promoting talented minority undergraduates. Also provided is a synthesis of various presentations delivered at a CGS meeting by representatives of eight institutional partnerships, alliances, and consortia, as well as the written reports and groups discussions that accompanied them. These institutional partnership programs are discussed within four categories: institutions and consortia, institutions and corporations, institutions and national laboratories, and institution-institution agreements. The publication concludes with a review of the principles of effective institutional cooperation. (GLR)
