Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the unique features of the text that set it apart from others is the use of theory throughout the chapters. A number of the foundational stduent development theories do not take into consideration persepectives from diverse populations. Thus, there is a need for research that examines the experiences of diverse groups and articulates how well the theories reflect the experiences of diverse populations. In conclusion, this is an excellent resourceful book that faculty and administrators can use to enhance multiculturalism on college campuses." (Journal of College Student Development)

"Offers suggestions for creating an inclusive environment for underrepresented groups." (The Chronicle of Higher Education)

"Not just another book on multiculturalism, this book is a much-needed practical resource on how to prepare a campus to identify the diverse identities of all its students, their commonalities and differences. These seasoned authors have prepared a comprehensive guide for all in higher education, from professionals to students. Examining the student experience with the knowledge provided here could make a positive difference in the retention of all students." (Gwendolyn Jordan Dungy, Executive Director)

"In two words: impressively comprehensive. New professionals and seasoned administrators alike will find much that is useful in this book. The editors have assembled a dynamic constellation of scholars who offer rich insights into the texture and substance of multiculturalism on contemporary college campuses. Anyone who aspires to become a more culturally competent and responsive educator should read this text." (Shaun R. Harper, Graduate School of Education, Africana Studies and Gender Studies)

"Multiculturalism on Campus is a tour de force. In this single volume noted scholars have created an excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate students; a teaching tool for faculty; and, a comprehensive resource for all who strive for multiculturalism and social justice on college campuses."
(Paul Shang, Assistant Vice President and Dean of Students, University of Oregon, Past President)

"This is a clearly written and comprehensive book that shifts our traditional understanding of diversity to the broader concepts of multiculturalism, shifting identities, competence and inclusion. It brings the reader to an awareness of the topic’s complexity, ambiguity and reality to inform the study and guidance of the American college student."
(Rosa Cintrón, Associate Professor & HEPS Program Area Coordinator, Department of Educational & Human Sciences (EHS), College of Education)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having worked on a Multicultural Center and traveling the world, because of my military service, I am a strong proponent of multiculturalism. Not just because of the friendships I have made, but because of the enrichment it has provided to my experiences and as a person. This book provides insight to the different ethnicities, nationalities, orientations, and their struggles. My eyes were opened to the struggles of the Asians, that of being stereotyped as being the smartest student in class. I now realize that any stereotype is wrong, because of the pressure that it can bring to a student. This book will be a great read for anyone interested or is working in an institution of higher ed.
