Article "Black Students Day Reviewed: Registrars Cite Potential Impact"

Description

This article is a review of the Open Campus for Black Students on April 27, 1971. The article lists how many incoming students are Black, offering a glimpse at how small the community of Black students was at the University. Faculty view the changes with optimism, with thanks to efforts such as the Open Campus. Thomas N. Pollard Jr., director of admissions at Richmond College, stated that an increase in diversity would be linked to "increasing contacts and publications, and spreading the good word." Mary Allen Anderson, director of admissions at Westhampton College, suggested that academic early-start programs should be promoted to Black students, such as remedial programs offered at University College.
