Report "Affirmative Action Plan for The T.C. Williams School Of Law of The University of Richmond"

Description

This is the Affirmative Action Plan for The T.C. Williams School Of Law. This document acknowledges the responsibility of the T.C Williams School of Law as a part of the University of Richmond to provide equal opportunity to minority students.This document mentions that equal opportunity will be provided to any graduate or professional studies student and also acknowledges that diversity among the student body is very important to the university. Dr. William Leftwich, Vice President for Student Affairs will be in charge of implementing the plan and overseeing departments to make sure the plan is implemented to its fullest. The equal opportunity policy will be efficiently communicated to faculty and staff by the Dean of the Law School through memos and meetings. The policy will also be published in the bulletins, catalogues, admission documents and other law school communication open to the public. The plan pointed out that the T.C Williams School of Law has been proactively trying to recruit minority students but is being undercut by the high number of law schools nearby and lower tuition rates of those law schools. The law school will actively recruit minority students by making it providing equal opportunity, financial aid and recruiting from undergraduate institutions with a high number of minority students including Virginia Union University, Hampton Institute, Virginia State University and Atlanta University. Also, the placement process for jobs will be practicing the equal opportunity policy along with providing minority students with additional help during this process.

Though this report is undated, a draft copy available in the papers of President Heilman at the Virginia Baptist Historical Society dates the draft copy to March 24, 1980.
