Project Spotlight

Aligning Achievement with Graduation Rates

The Office of African-American Affairs was established in 1976 as an integral part of the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Virginia. The Office of African-American Affairs serves as a change agent, seeking to assist the University in addressing a range of issues related to students. The purpose of the project is to guest edit a special issue of the Peabody Journal of Education on mentoring African-American students in higher education. This issue will include four to five articles on mentoring at the Office of African-American Affairs and another four to five papers from other Universities. It will have a total of 260 print pages. The second purpose is to expand this special edition into a book monograph published by the University Press of Virginia or comparable publishing house. It will have a total of 275 print pages. In this book, readers will have an opportunity to see how radically different the experiences of the early graduates are from current students.
