How Majority Institutions Recruit and Retain Minority Students
CEEHD Leadership Institute

Signifies the social construction of underrepresentation and subordination. Persons are not born into minority status nor are they minoritized in every social milieu(e.g., in their families and places of religious worship). Instead, they are rendered minorities in particular situations and institutional environments that maintain an overrepresentation of one racial group and its dominant cultural norms.

Reliance on standardized tests
Fear based decision making
Paucity of diversity in leadership
Belief that treating everyone the same is treating everyone fairly!
To each equally
To each according to need
To each according to merit
To each according to the person’s rights
To each according to individual effort
To each as you would be done by
To each according to the greatest good to the greatest number.

“If you touch a spider’s web anywhere, you set the whole thing trembling. As we move through and around this world, and as we act with kindness, or indifference, or even hostility toward the people we meet, we too, are setting the great spider web a-tremble. The life I touch will touch another life, and that, in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place and time my touch will be felt. You can’t find a better way to quantify or qualify someone’s legacy. Just think of the web you have set a-tremble”.Frederick Buechner
