The School of Education's Office of
Minority Student Affairs (OMSA) has a
new director as well as a new modus
operandi. The office will soon institute
new recruiting procedures.
Ted Shorten, a first-year doctoral
student in the University's Center for
Higher Education, took over the direc-
tor's post this month, from Peter Bun-
ton, who graduated.
"WE SPENT a considerable amount
of time last year evaluating where we
are, and where we want to go," Shorten
said. "We wanted to know if there is a
need for the Office of Minority Student
Affairs, and if so, whatare the needs
this office should address."
The OMSA was reviewed last winter
by the director, assistant director, and
minority faculty members. After
studying the group's findings, School of
Education Dean Joan Stark recom-
mended in May that:
" Graduate student assistants not be
hired to staff the OMSA beyond, spring
term this year;
" The Office of Academic Services
hire a minority counselor;
* OMSA keep a full-time secretary,
" Additional operating expenses for
recruiting be provided to the Office of
"With the budget cuts, the deanasked
that every department within the
school be evaluated," OMSA assistant
director Joan Castillo said.'
"Everybody was being looked at."
Castillo said she worked spring term,
and Bunton worked summer term, to
staff the office with available funds.
The OMSA now has two paid quarter-
time positions (director and assistant
director), as well as a full-time
secretarial position, not yet filled.
SHORTEN SAID the OMSA concerns it
self with the needs of graduate studen-
ts, with emphasis on development of
research and professional advan-
"Most of the problems graduate
students face are not related to race,"
Shorten said. "The majority of us are
adjusting to being at a large university,
and trying to get a hold on the reading
we have to do."
Shorten said the office has new plans
for recruitment of minority students'
"IN THE PAST, we relied primarily:
on recruiting at schools and colleges,"
he said. "We're going to berecruiting
now at professional conventions, and
will also advertise in professional trade
"The majority of the students are not
coming directly from an academic set-
ting," he said. "These are the people
we're going after."
Castillo said the office does not seek
out undergraduates, usually sending
them to other sources, such as the Of-
fice of Minority Student Services or the
Shorten said the OMSA is not concer-
ned with providing basic educational
services for students.
"At this level, remediation is just not
an issue," he said. "The biggest issue
for graduate students is how they can
gain exposure for their work, and how
they can find jobs that will utilize their
Shorten said the University's
primary purpose is to service academic
leaders, and as a result a large amount
of educational funding is used for
"When you look across the board at
the research organizations individuals
rely on, there is a tremendous void of
articles written by minorities," he said.
"The best way to rectify this is to in-
crease the number of minorities in-
volved in scholarly research.
"If wescan serve as a vehicle for the
development of scholarly work for
research on minorities," he said, "that
will be beneficial to the minority corn-
