Networking with Historically Black Colleges and Universities: Cultural Diversity in Public Administration Education at Indiana State University. A Final Report on a Cultural Diversity Innovation in Public Administration Education Project, 1992-1993.
Mohapatra, Manindra K.; McDowell, James L.
This final report describes a Cultural Diversity Innovation project implemented in 1992-93 at Indiana State University (ISU). The central objective of the project was to enrich cultural diversity elements in the Masters in Public Administration (MPA) curriculum at ISU through the presentations of visiting faculty from historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Visiting African American faculty researchers made seminar presentations to MPA students and faculty on public policy issues relating to African American communities. Project evaluation indicators included: MPA student feedback, MPA faculty opinion, visitors' views, and tangible efforts of ISU in establishing collaborative relationships with HBCUs for instruction, research and outreach activities. This report includes separate sections which present project objectives and implementation plan, summary findings of a state administrator survey regarding cultural diversity as projected in "Workforce 2000" (a Hudson Institute study), the survey instrument itself, project outcomes, and conclusions. Appendices include a list of HBCUS, a list of HBCUs with MPA or comparable academic programs, HBCU faculty presentations at ISU, with references, featured in issues of the research newsletter of the Center for Governmental Services at ISU, a profile of MPA faculty at ISU, and a summary of the MPA program at ISU.
