Some colleges might argue that integrating minority students successfully so they can graduate is unrealistic. Schools do not have funding or the resources to create a comparable program to the Rutgers Future Scholars Program. Rutgers just entered the Committee on Institutional Corporation (CIC) and the Big Ten. These organizations fund Rutger's largest programs and research. The CIC provides more academic opportunities for all Rutgers students and The Big Ten provides funding for Rutgers Athletics. The CIC specifically helps Rutgers, "save money, share assets, and increase teaching, learning and research opportunities" for the entire Rutgers Community (counter argument source). Because Rutgers is being helped by these organizations, they can focus other funds and resources on smaller programs like the RFSP. Other Universities that are not part of large funding organizations might not be able to follow through with a program for minorities because they do not have extra financial support.
Disprove counter argument:
Although small universities have limitations, with more government funding for all American universities, extensive minority programs are possible.

This material perfectly supports my argument. I want colleges to implement programs that are much needed for minority students so the economy can continue thrive in America.

This is a case study about the importance of emotional intelligence for college students. Students at the freshman orientation at a particular college were given the Bar-On EQ self-report test. This test measures emotional and social intelligence. Through this study it was predicted that the demographic most likely to graduate were white females. Minorities such as first generation students are less likely to graduate because of a lack of emotional support from parents. The article suggests means of improving emotional intelligence by universities making preparation programs that help improve emotional intelligence.
Larry A. Sparkman:
He is the director of the Luckyday Foundation Citizenship Scholars Program at the University of Southern Mississippi. Sparkman is involved with the living-learing community, servicelearning and servant leadership at the university.
Jalynn G. Roberts:
emotional intelligence: It is comprised of social responsibility and empathy. It is set of skill's a person needs to function effectively in life. Emotional intelligence can be taught by universities to increase likelihood of graduation.
Social responsibility and empathy: can be addressed by universities through academics and extracurricular activities.
