Final Self-Study Report Chapter 4: 15 Aug 2000
Program activities that directly support the Universitys mission include forums that address student retention issues, study marathons before final exams, academic advising and counseling, and assistance on choosing a graduate field or school. Plays produced by the Program utilize and enhance the talents of students, both on stage and behind the scenes. The Program collaborates with other units on campus to present programs in the performing arts that attract audiences and prospective students who otherwise might not come to the campus.
Black Studies supports other minority programs on campus including CLASS, LINK, Mentoring, and Mali Yetu, an alternative Afro-centric summer school program for children. Off campus collaborations include UMADOP, a drug prevention program, the Job Corps, Cleveland Treatment Center, and the Berea Childrens Center. Each year, the Black Studies staff organizes and produces a program for the campus and the community observing the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Black Studies Program has achieved its goals and advanced the Universitys mission by sponsoring and supporting activities that contribute to diversity, the academic experiences and success of students, and community outreach and education. Audience and participant surveys have consistently rated the Programs activities as good-to-excellent.
