Ensuring 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 explores ways to move beyond recruiting toward ensuring the success of underrepresented minorities in graduate education and includes discussions of mentoring, curricular reform, and support systems. Strategies to ensure success include: (1) build a critical mass of students; (2) be aware of student needs; (3) welcome creative changes to curriculum; (4) mentor students effectively; (5) intervene as necessary; (6) create support services; and (7) develop effective funding strategies. Appendixes list contributors and some inclusiveness programs. (SLD)
