Title

"Fact Sheet-Minority Students"

Description

This is a report on the current state and history of minority students on campus as well as student engagement with minorities from the University of Richmond in 1973. This fact sheet lists the efforts the University of Richmond has made with integration and increasing campus diversity. It also mentions how students themselves have tried to engage with black communities. This sheet states that the University had "made constant and continuing efforts, through a variety of actions and programs, to comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964." The University claimed to make an active effort to recruit black students and make their nondiscrimination policies known to all. In the 1972-1973 academic year, the University of Richmond had 99 black full and part-time students, 11 Asian students, and 10 "Spanish Surnamed Americans" making minority students 2.1% of total enrollment.
