Abstract

This article describes a workshop designed for students and faculty that is based on Herman Blake's research on Academic Syndromes of Minority Students. Blake presented the results of his research at the 1980 POD Conference and what he had to say then has even broader applications now. The workshop explores the roles of Ultimate Doom, Getting Over and Alienation in the lives of our students. The author suggests that this workshop could be an integral part of an effective retention effort for many schools.
