Title

Feature "Morrill addresses minority concerns"

Description

This article was published in The Collegian in 1989 and features an interview with then University of Richmond president, Richard L. Morrill. In this piece, Morrill discusses the University's diversity issue and emphasizes the need to broaden its base of diversity within the student population to become as diverse as it wanted to be. Morrill acknowledges UR's past attempts to diversify, and states that he believes it is was "heading the right direction." However, Morrill believes more needs to be done. One factor that Morrill mentions as being a deterrent regardless of race was the high tuition -- $12,500 (approximately $25,000 adjusted for inflation in 2016, in 2017 the tuition is approximately $60,000). He suggests increasing financial aid packages for students.
