Open Access Graduate Research Paper


The question of placement needs of minority students/or disadvantaged students and non-minority students at predominately white colleges and universities have several implications. One such implication is that placement officers are concerned with placement needs of minority and non-minority students on the campus at the same level. Another implication is that the needs for these two groups (minority and non-minority) differ, thus making the special needs of a particular group missed or unseen. The problem which evolves from this concern may be phrased as a question, "How can Placement Center officials effectively assess the differing placement needs of minority students at predominately white colleges and universities? 11 A narrow focus on social reality regarding employment opportunities for minorities could possibly generate more emotional hostility than insight into how to effectively deal with the situation.
