Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Promoting cultural diversity is of nation wide concern on college campuses. There have been many articles written on the need for diversity on college campuses. Unfortunately, despite having recognized the value of cultural diversity, many institutions have failed to adequately fund or support programs which are meant to achieve diversity. This paper will examine the treatment of African-American students. Pertinent issues considered will be societal pressures, African-American racial identity issues, financial pressure, and the effects of racism. All of these issues are important because they determine student success in college. The paper will conclude with recommendations for the future.
