Abstract

With increasing antagonism towards "affirmative action" and rapidly changing cultural demographics throughout the country, colleges today and in the foreseeable future face formidable challenges in attracting and maintaining a culturally diverse undergraduate student population. This session will look at the changing cultural makeup of U.S. cities and suburbs and their schools, the legality of ethnically-oriented recruitment efforts, scholarships, and academic success programs, and the resources available to target specific cultural populations.
