Recruiting for Success. Inclusiveness Series.
Council of Graduate Schools, Washington, DC.
Since 1994, the Council of Graduate Schools has awarded the Peterson's Award for Innovation in Promoting an Inclusive Graduate Community to one graduate school each year for the leadership it has taken in modeling practices and programs for the graduate community as a whole. This volume, second in a series, describes effective strategies from award winners and other leaders of inclusiveness in graduate schools. Steps for building an inclusive graduate program through effective recruiting are: (1) setting goals/establishing criteria for success; (2) locating funding; (3) building a case about why the institution is desirable for an inclusive graduate education; (4) knowing where to find prospective students; (5) developing effective networks; (6) offering research opportunities and campus visits; (7) rethinking admissions criteria; (8) securing departmental commitment; (9) reviewing what works and what doesn't; (10) understanding cultural differences; (11) communicating inclusiveness efforts; and (12) diversifying the faculty. Two appendixes list the contributors and the programs. (SLD)
