UI policy, as it relates to minority cultures or educationally disadvantaged segments of society, is to foster an environment that will allow for their recognition by the faculty, staff, and students in such a way as to afford such students a better opportunity to compete for and attain an education consonant with their particular abilities and concerns. Ubuntu recommends and reviews university policies concerning students from minority cultures (in consultation with Student Advisory Services) and students who are educationally disadvantaged (in consultation with Student Support Services), aids these students in developing successful academic programs, and encourages cultural programs that emphasize the contributions of minority groups to American culture (see 1640.58).
