Mitchell, Wanda S.
Black Issues in Higher Education, v22 n1 p90 Feb 2005

After all, interactions with the unfamiliar force people to question long-held beliefs and the way they normally do business. The academy is accustomed to doing things the "traditional way." In institutions of higher learning, students are admitted and faculty and staff are recruited based on very focused criteria, often not questioning the effectiveness of such or exploring other options. Therefore, the same type of results are achieved and deem this "par excellence." This article demonstrates how this description applies to the of University of New Hampshire (UNH).
