Multicultural Strategies for Community Colleges.
Kee, Arnold Madison; Mahoney, James R.
Focusing on community college programs designed to achieve multicultural climates and minority student success, this monograph provides profiles from documents in the ERIC database of such programs established in the 1990s by individual colleges or developed in partnerships with community, business, or other educational institutions. Introductory materials provide a conceptual framework for minority programs and present a synopsis of strategies described in the profiles. One-page descriptions are then provided of 21 programs focusing on students, including 8 related to recruitment, 6 regarding retention, 6 related to student success, and 2 focusing on transfer. Next, descriptions are provided for faculty programs, including five related to recruitment, two focusing on development, and two on advancement. Five programs related to administrator advancement are then reviewed, and then five campus-wide multicultural efforts related to campus climate and assessment and program assessment are profiled. For all the sections, the profiles include the program title, host institution, and contact person, as well as descriptions of program philosophies and strategies. Finally, a 117-item bibliography is provided of resources related to community colleges and higher education. An agenda for minority education by the American Association of Community Colleges is appended. (KP)
