From the Back Cover
"This book is a much-needed contribution to the literature about minority issues in higher education and MSIs in particular. It adds to our understanding about where MSIs have been and where they are likely to go, and will be enormously useful to the national dialogue about improving both the quality and accessibility of American higher education in the coming years." -- Jamie P. Merisotis, President, Institute for Higher Education Policy
"This robust collection provides an exemplary introduction to MSIs. With passion and scholarly acumen, this diverse and engaging book offers multiple perspectives on the contributions as well as challenges and opportunities facing these institutions--and brings attention to institutions that have often remained largely invisible on the landscape of higher education." -- Clifton Conrad, University of Wisconsin at Madison
"This is an engaging, insightful, and masterfully crafted book. The editors deserve praise for assembling such a respectable cast of scholars and producing a book that will surely become the seminal text on MSIs. This book adds tremendous value, illuminates critical trends and issues, and dispels several faulty assumptions regarding MSIs." -- Shaun R. Harper, Director, Research Division, National Association of Student Personnel Administrators
