Enhancing the Minority Presence in Graduate Education IV: Models and Resources for Minority Student Recruitment and Retention.
This publication explores a general model for a comprehensive program comprising identification, recruitment, retention, and graduation of minority graduate students and includes examples of specific activities carried out by a variety of institutions in support of this model. The model and examples are based on a 1992 Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) survey of university recruitment and retention programs. The model contains the following seven elements: strategic plan; institutional commitment; assessment; goals; strategies; implementation; and evaluation. Each of these features is explored in detail in its own section. The section on implementation contains 14 examples of how activities similar to those proposed in the model are implemented in a number of ways by a variety of institutions. A comprehensive list of all the activities and strategies discussed up to this point is provided as a checklist. There follows a detailed resource directory of graduate school representatives, with addresses and telephone numbers, who are responsible for the development and coordination of minority graduate student recruitment and retention programs in universities across the nation. The representatives are also listed alphabetically with institutional affiliation. Appendixes contain a profile of responses to the 1992 CGS survey of graduate minority recruitment and retention and 13 references. (JB)
