UW Oshkosh 2008 Diversity Plan: Questions for Student Response

From your perspective, what are the one or two most significant issues related to diversity that should be addressed by the UW Oshkosh 2008 Diversity Plan?

1. What are some of the issues related to the successful recruitment of students of color to UW Oshkosh, and how might the university improve its recruitment efforts?

2. How might UW Oshkosh partner with community groups, school districts, or other organizations to reach students and their families?

3. What are some of the issues related to the retention and graduation of students of color at UW Oshkosh, and how might the university improve retention and graduation of students?

4. How would you characterize the climate for diversity on the UW Oshkosh campus and/or throughout the Oshkosh area community?

5. In your opinion, what are the most significant assets of UW Oshkosh and the Oshkosh area community that could be applied to diversity issues?


The seven goals, proposed by UW System, that the Council is working on are:

  1. Increase the number of high school graduates of color who apply, are accepted, and enroll at UW System institutions.
  2. Encourage partnerships that build the educational pipeline by reaching children and their parents at an earlier age.
  3. Close the gap in educational achievement, by bringing retention and graduation rates for students of color in line with those of the student body as a whole.
  4. Increase the amount of financial aid available to needy students and reduce their reliance on loans.
  5. Increase the number of faculty, academic staff, classified staff and administrators of color, so that they are represented in the UW System workforce in proportion to their current availability in relevant job pools. In addition, work to increase their future availability as potential employees.
  6. Foster institutional environments and course development that enhance learning and a respect for racial and ethnic diversity.
  7. Improve accountability of the UW System and its institutions.
