This chapter uses an Internet survey of Protestant schools to find out why students of color are more or less likely to attend certain Protestant educational institutions. Analysis of these data indicates that there is very little Protestant colleges and universities can do to attract African Americans and Native Americans. However, a variety of diversity initiatives are correlated with the percentage of Hispanic and Asian Americans on campus. Furthermore, educational courses that deal with racial issues and student-led multicultural organizations are more highly correlated to the retention of a diverse student body than multicultural, antiracism, community, or non-European cultural programs.

Keywords:   student-led multicultural organizations, history months, diversity initiatives, financial aid, social integration, institutional diversity programs
