Subject

Diversity Programming for Incoming Minority Students

Description

Pre-Orientation at Washington and Lee included two different programs. One of which entailed a diverse geographic, ethnic and racial background and the other covered international students. These programs were designed to help accustom domestic and international students to Washington and Lee’s campus by coordinating events to bond incoming students with one another. However, due to an increase in participants, Dean of Students David Howison claimed it caused the lack of continuity of students within the first year class. Other students suggested that international students might have needed the pre-orientation program more than domestic black students, while other students thought that communicating with individuals from different backgrounds might assist the adjustment.
