African American Students at Predominantly White Institutions: A Collaborative Style Cohort Recruitment & Retention Model
Eakins, Amanda; Eakins, Sheldon L., Sr.
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v13 n2 p51-57 Fall 2017
Recently the US have seen a movement of African American students demonstrating dissatisfaction with their treatment and presence at predominantly white institutions. Some of the common discrepancies from the students' perspectives have included the lack of student and faculty representation of color on these campuses. The model of cohort recruitment or cluster hiring has been a practice used to help diversify the faculty representation at PWIs. A similar model may be developed to recruit and retain African American students, but it requires synergy between schools, colleges, and the admissions department.
