* A unique reference describing successful diversity initiatives in higher education

Higher education, like the nation, is facing major demographic changes. Our colleges and universities recognize they not only have to be more inclusive, but that they have to provide an environment that will effectively retain and develop the growing population of ethnically and racially diverse students. How ready are they and what should they be doing?

Frank W. Hale, Jr. -- known as the "Dean of Diversity" for his pioneering efforts in establishing Ohio State as one of the institutions graduating the most Black Ph.D.s -- has gathered twenty-two leading scholars and administrators from around the country who describe the successful diversity programs they have developed.

Recognizing the importance of diversity as a means of embracing the experiences, perspectives and expertise of other cultures, this book shares what has been most effective in helping institutions to create an atmosphere and a campus culture that not only admits students, faculty and staff of color but accepts and welcomes their presence and participation.

This is a landmark reference for every institution concerned with inclusivity and diversity. The successes it presents offers academic leaders much they can learn from, and ideas and procedures they can adapt, as they discuss and develop their own campus policies and initiatives.

Industry Reviews

"A compendium of resources. Some chapters might be more useful to student affairs practitioners. Others might be useful to teachers and administrators. In general the personal narratives emerge most strongly as a testament to the efforts and struggles involved in transforming the capacity of higher education to successfully educate students of color."--Journal of College Student Development
"This comprehensive 336-page book...speaks directly to the question, What makes diversity work in higher education? The authors do a great job of sharing strategies and techniques used by their own institutions to enhance diversity. This book would be excellent for university professionals interested in understanding the importance of diversity and implementing diversity initiatives to support faculty and students...an excellent resource guide."-- (10/01/2008)
"This is a very useful collection of eighteen insightful essays for department chairs, deans, provosts, and others in positions of responsibility who are able to influence a college or university's policies and strategies to develop and advance a racially and culturally inclusive teaching and learning environment."--Teaching Theology and Religion Journal (03/01/2008)
