Additional Book Details

"This book provides an analysis of racism and goes on to provide some suggestions as to what can be done to reduce it. The issue is explored from the standpoint of both students and faculty and, in my opinion, is well worth reading and studying."
--The Academic Bookshelf
No topic causes more concern at today′s university than a discussion of diversity in education. Controversies about affirmative action hires, admission policies, intercultural relations in the classroom, the role of ethnic studies departments, and changes in the course curriculum all seem to swirl around the changing ethnic composition of the campus. How do we all get along? Tackling this question are authors Benjamin P. Bowser, Gale S. Auletta, and Terry Jones, who suggest some practical strategies for dealing with questions of racism, diversity, and intercultural communication. Their suggestions are addressed to both European-American faculty and faculty of color, and range from strategies to improve intercultural interpersonal skills to broad structural changes the university needs to undergo to fully embrace its diverse population.
