Title

Student Organization for Black Awareness "Three Goals for 1977-1978"

Description

The Student Organization for Black Awareness (SOBA) got together to establish three goals for the 1977-1978 academic year. First, they wanted to see the University of Richmond "actively recruit blacks and minority students." To do so, they aimed to have students of color join the Admissions recruiting teams on trips, which they had offered to do so in the past, but were denied. Additionally, they proposed to help the Admissions Office create brochures targeted at minority students. SOBA also wanted a scholarship specifically for minority students included "in the Academic Our Time In History Campaign" to attract more students of color to the University. Finally, they wanted to see more black and minority faculty members because they felt as if they were important models for black and minority college students.
