Editorial Reviews

Review


"Insightful, useful, timely. George Yancey expertly shows why Protestant colleges and universities are typically less diverse than other institutions of higher learning, why it matters, and how to change. A riveting book sure to have lasting impact."

-Michael O. Emerson, Allyn R. and Gladys M. Cline Professor of Sociology, Rice University


"You are going to love this book! More importantly, if you are an advocate for diversity at Christian colleges and universities-you are going to use this book. George Yancey gives research-based evidence that identifies the specific factors needed to create and sustain a culturally diverse campus. This is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to move diversity forward in Christian higher education. This is a book that we've been waiting for!"

--Rev. Dr. Brenda Salter McNeil, President, Salter McNeil & Associates, LLC


"Yancey's research has important implications even beyond the Protestant colleges and universities that were his data source. After reluctantly concluding that many institutional diversity programs appear to be ineffective, he provides convincing evidence for the ongoing power of the classroom-and the professor-to alter student attitudes about race."

--Rhonda Hustedt Jacobsen, Professor of Psychology and Director of Faculty Development, Messiah College


"Yancey's careful attention to the potpourri of existing institutional diversity initiatives and the realization that these initiatives may differentially influence the academic persistence and experiences of students with respect to race is laudable. Also noteworthy is Yancey's recognition that it was important to study the correlates of matriculation and graduation for racial and ethnic minority students separately by racial and ethnic group. By doing so, Yancey does not homogenize the experiences of racial and ethnic minority students...Yancey's findings do inspire questions for future research in this area and highlight the necessity of applying an expansive understanding of all the factors related to the development of cultural competence and a more positive and inclusive campus racial climate."--The Journal of Higher Education

Diversity is a big issue in this country, it is a huge issue in higher education, and fundamental issue in Christian higher education. Anyone who has spent a few minutes on both a public university campus and Christian university campus will probably notice instantly the difference in diversity. Historically, Christian colleges and universities have been predominantly white, and despite well-intended diversity initiatives over the past few decades most Christian campuses remain homogenous.

Dr. George Yancey wants to know why and what these schools can do. This book is essentially a large journal article with qualitative and quantitative research about diversity on Protestant campuses across the country. In the research, he discovers the effectiveness of admission and retention initiatives, diversity classes, minority professors, chapel speakers, and so much more. This book gives real data to a real problem on our campuses. A problem we cannot avoid.

The book is not afraid to tell us what does not work. As a student development professional, it stings a little to see the ineffectiveness of diversity/multicultural offices, but it is very encouraging to see how student-led organizations, faculty, and classes can have lasting impact.

Anyone who wants to work on a Christian campus ought to read this book.
