Title: Economy Booster or Diversity to Student Body?
Author(s): Chai, Lucia
Subject(s): international students diversity cost Spring 2010 RHET 105
Issue Date: 2010
Series/Report: Rhetoric 105 was designed to help students develop their reading, writing, and research skills and lay a foundation for the rest of their University career. This course gave students practice in: critically reading and analyzing texts, forming arguments, gathering and evaluating research, synthesizing multiple sources, conducting qualitative research, and composing (inventing, drafting, revising). This section of Rhet. 105 was centered on the theme of “Race and the University.” Our course was part of UIUC’s Ethnography of the University Initiative (EUI)—a cross-campus initiative that supports undergraduate research about the university experience and encourages the archiving of this research. The assignments and discussions asked students to explore their own experience as a UIUC student and consider issues of race in higher education. Students conducted their own qualitative research through observations, interviews, and surveys.
