California Lutheran Gets Serious About Racial Diversity

In 2001 the student body at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks was only one percent black. Administrators then established the InCLUsive Overnight Program in an effort to increase racial diversity on campus. Under the program, 50 minority students from around the United States who have been accepted for admission at California Lutheran are flown to California to visit the campus. All food, travel, and lodging expenses are paid for by the university.

Since the program was established, black enrollments on campus have tripled and there have also been significant increases in Asian and Hispanic students.
