SP3.4: Explore Increasing Scholarship to Aid Recruiting Diverse Students, Undergrad and Graduate
This project is designed to increase student diversity. At the undergraduate level, we are increasing outreach to students of color and will use $50,000 from the American Dream Scholarship Program to reduce unmet needs for low income students entering the University in Fall 2014. At the graduate level, we are seeking ways to supplement Clark Fellowship funds by cost-sharing more with graduate programs and by adding additional funds from other sources. We are also increasing outreach to students from underrepresented groups.
Goals advanced under this project:
Provide support services to all students, faculty, and staff with special needs.
Indicators of success for this goal are:
- Satisfaction of students, faculty and staff with special needs of the quality and quantity of support services provided as measured by campus surveys.
Milestones completed as of last progress report:
- Aid is set to be distributed to current students to decrease the “gap”
- Undergraduate Admissions has made the recruitment of a diverse student population a priority
- A NYC regional recruiter has been hired and one focus will be the recruitment of a more diverse student population
- A recruitment plan focused on outreach to a more diverse student body is being developed
- Received Road Map funding of $50,000 to distribute in 2014-15
