Summary "In The Future of Diversity, distinguished academic leaders - heads of universities and foundations as well as faculty with valuable research and personal experience - discuss the next stage in the pursuit of democratic diversity and excellence on our campuses across the country. How can we make our universities more socially representative and open to all who wish to study? How can we create a campus culture that is more hospitable to a diverse student, staff, and faculty? What steps can we take to improve the university's relevance to our globalizing world? This volume assesses current attempts to create a positive and democratic campus culture and lays out some specific and general proposals for achieving greater success in the future"--Provided by publisher
