Abstract

Efforts to recruit disadvantaged students have been increasing over the past three decades. How to retain those students once they have been recruited remains a critical issue for faculty. The authors include a Faculty Development Model presently being implemented at an inner city community college to increase faculty's expertise in enhancing the skills and abilities of students from diverse backgrounds with an emphasis on the disadvantaged student.
