TheBatt: Admissions Officer at Faculty Senate

By Carrie Pierce, “Faculty Senate Addresses Master Plan, Enrollment, Feb. 10, 2004

“We are not racially diverse,” he [Frank Ashley, acting assistant provost for

enrollment] said. “Our numbers were negative for African American enrollment last

year.”

Of the 6,500 freshmen enrolled in fall 2003, only 161 were black, Ashley

said.

“We have something we have to work on here at Texas A&M,” he

said.

Ashley said the recruitment committee is sending people out to all regions of

Texas to attract students, blanketing the whole state.

The recruitment committee and

financial aid department are also coming together for the first time to discuss options, Ashley

said.
