Notes on Equal Opportunity Recruiting


Admissions Officer Edward T. Chamberlain's notes on equal opportunity recruitment include an appendix with the “three term plan” by students in the Dartmouth Afro-American Society to encourage more Black students to apply to Dartmouth College. The self-appointed Black Student Application Encouragement Committee (BSAEC) outlines costs incurred by student recruiters and recruitment tactics in the form of on-site high school visits, mailed letters and informational packets to prospective students, conference attendance, and calls or meetings with Black students accepted to the College.
