Proposals for Achieving Significant Integration of Minority Groups at UMBC

Title

Proposals for Achieving Significant Integration of Minority Groups at UMBC

Description

In response to a 1969 University of Maryland report on integration, Dr. Kuhn appointed a committee chaired by English professor Philip J. Klukoff to draft a report making specific recommendations for UMBC to attract more minority students. The report states that UMBC must demonstrate active concern for the causes and implications of social inequity and actively participate in ameliorating those causes.� A series of recommendations by the committee form the substance of the report, including publicizing UMBC�s desire to be inclusive to the African American community and advertising for residence hall counselors at historically black colleges and universities; waiving application fees and making available work-study programs to make college more affordable; providing tutorial services to ensure student success; hiring African American admissions officers and a greater number of African American faculty; and establishing an African American Studies program.
