Description

This article discussed how the University of Richmond has participated in programs aimed at recruiting black students. These programs included the “National Scholarship Service and Fund for Negro Students Special College Day College Program,” and the “National Scholarship Program for Outstanding Negro Students.” Virginia’s new program was created to increase by 150% the black student enrollment in its public educational institutions within four years. Thomas N. Pollard Jr., Director of Admissions, said private institutions lack minority recruitment programs. Dr. David D. Burhans, Chaplain, felt that UR lacked diversity.
