Know Your Enemy: The Assault on Diversity
Black Issues in Higher Education, v21 n15 p32 Sep 2004
While policy-makers and educational administrators decry the underrepresentation of African American students in institutions of higher education, groups like the Center for Individual Rights (CIR) work to limit African American presence on campuses even more. While innovative programmers build programs that will attract African American students to their campuses, CIR attacks programs that are designed for minority students. This article discusses this issue and provides recommendataions for improvement.
