  • Roxanne Smith (Iowa State University)

Abstract

This workshop will present the Afrocentric Cultural Recruitment Model and provide examples of methods used grounded in heritage, pride, and opportunity. Initiatives that incorporate the culture, heritage, and historical experience of African Americans will be examined. The workshop will benefit recruiters, administrators, faculty, advisors, students, and others with an interest in strengthening African American student enrollment and community relations. The material discussed will provide a summary and reflection of a 1999 NCORE presentation, "Successfully Recruiting and Retaining African American Students: An Afrocentric Model that Works at Traditionally White Campuses", presented by Dr. Zenobia Hikes, University of Delaware, Julani Ghana, West Chester University, and Slyvia Terry, University Of Virginia.
