Scope and content

Historical Note: At the request of a group of alumni, President Drake created The President's Committee for a Stronger Minority Presence (PCSMP) in 1989. Its mission was "to explore avenues for assisting the College in building a stronger multi-cultural community beginning with a focus on the minority community." Their first meeting was in September 1989. They met with a group of faculty, students, and staff to draft recommendations for the President. The Multicultural Task Force was created in August 1991 to work toward the goal of making the college a more multicultural community. It included students, faculty, and staff. Cook's papers contain memos, surveys & results, and minutes from Task Force meetings and similar materials for the PCSMP plus its recommendations to the President. There are many duplicates of items in various folders that were not discarded during processing. Provenance: Transferred to Archives by Shane Cook, Alumni Secretary and staff member for both groups, March 1999 Related materials: Additional materials on the Multicultural Task Force (02.12 p15)
