Description

Exploring Campus Diversity: Case Studies and Exercises explores the realistic chain of events that happens on college and university campuses across the United States that involve issues of diversity and campus climate. Many of the real-life scenarios presented in the book are taken from actual events on university and college campuses. A full array of learning exercises is associated with each of the case studies, and problem-solving questions are presented to stimulate understanding of the situations and how they relate using thoughtful, critical, and reflective reasoning. Specifically, Exploring Campus Diversity examines diversity dilemmas pertaining to the challenges of expanding diversity and equity on American campuses. Experts from across the nation proffer problem-solving questions that are included at the end of each case study to guide the reader in ways of thinking about the diversity scenarios and deciding on appropriate ways to understand and recommend action to take in addressing the potential problem. Each case study offers examples of a possible challenge that a college or university might encounter in trying to deal with diversity, campus climate issues, or problematic policies. This book pushes the reader beyond the theoretical to the practical application of diversity principles in their everyday lives.
