Summary

The monograph summarizes ideas expressed by nearly 100 graduate deans from Council of Graduate School member institutions who met in 3 separate groups in 3 separate locations to discuss how they could enhance the presence of minority graduate students and faculty on the nation's college and university campuses. Related issues discussed during the meetings included minority graduate student attrition, and how an institution can attract and retain them in its attempt to build a minority presence on campus. The report reveals the points that were raised and the suggestions offered by the deans and others who participated in the following areas: (1) expanding the pool of eligible minority students through early identification and preparation of students for graduate study; (2) expanding the process by involving the entire campus community, especially the faculty and deans; (3) creating a supportive environment; and (4) enlisting the support of the administration and institutionalizing policy change to eliminate the need to renew efforts each year. A listing of main points that emerged from the discussions are provided and broken out into three main categories: matters of general concern; issues related to program generation; and factors related to enhancing the educational environment.
