ABSTRACT
This article offers advice to minority students on how to choose a college and identify institutions that value diversity. Many traditionally white institutions are working to be viewed and to function as �inclusive universities.� The inclusive university provides equal access and opportunity, as well as an accommodating environment, for all members of the academic community, regardless of racial, ethnic, social, or economic backgrounds (CPRJ, 1993). While they recognize that traditional pre-college recruitment is important, they know that they must do more for students of color once they matriculate to help them feel comfortable on campus and to ensure their success. To that end, administrators are considering other factors important to students: curriculum, opportunities for faculty and peer interaction, support services, social activities on campus and in the community, and living arrangements. Institutional leaders also recognize that, in some circumstances, they must overcome past perceptions of discrimination.
