Title

Article "Minorities Studied"

Description

“Minorities Studied” is a Collegian article from November 21st, 1985, that expressed a need from faculty and black students for the University of Richmond to recruit a more diverse population of students. The article introduces a committee that specifically targeted recruiting a more diverse population of black students given that the majority of them were athletes. The committee was also geared towards bringing in more black faculty members. Leland Melvin, one of the two student representatives on the committee said, “A black identity needs to be established through black alliance, for example.” University of Richmond had a strong reputation of being a white, Baptist institution. Melvin suggests that through the establishment of a black alliance, it could be an indicator to prospective black students at UR that black students are in fact present on campus.
