In fall 1986, Arthur Himmelman, senior program officer with The McKnight Foundation, convened a meeting of three college presidents: Charles Anderson, Augsburg; Steven Lewis, Carleton; and Robert Gavin, Macalester to consider the impact of a three-year grant provided for scholarships to attract and retain students of color to their respective campuses. The review showed mixed results. While some progress had been made, it was clear a more comprehensive approach was necessary if students of color were to have opportunity and access in Minnesota postsecondary institutions.
