This volume offers a new perspective on the relationship between effective practice and institutional outcomes. Its original theoretical model--generated through the analysis of extensive case studies of ten baccalaureate-granting institutions--is useful for understanding and improving minority participation and graduate rates. Provided are ten examples of how institutions can manage organizational culture to overcome barriers to equity. The candid and undisguised accounts of the experiences of ten major public universities reveal the influence of state policy, mission, student characteristics and special interventions.
