Creating Multicultural Change on Campus, State Postsecondary Education Research: New Methods to Inform Policy and Practice, Why Aren't We There Yet?: Taking Personal Responsibility for Creating an Inclusive Campus, Multicultural Competence in Student Affairs
This is an opportune time for researchers in higher education to examine policy via cross state comparative analyses Momentous court legislative and policy developments that impact state level higher education policy are emerging at a rapid rate The states have emerged as postsecondary policy innovators in the areas of student financing institutional accountability and student access Following political scientists rediscovery of states as units of analysis because they constitute unique natural laboratories for testing theory and hypotheses about political behavior and policy adoption dynamics this book introduces this perspective as an increasingly important tool for researchers in higher education State Postsecondary Education Research provides an in depth examination of the challenges and opportunities inherent in conducting cross state higher education policy research The authors of each chapter use their individual research projects to demonstrate the array of methodological theoretical analytical and political challenges inherent in conducting comparative state level policy research Among the innovative methods described is the use of pooled cross sectional time series analytic techniques and event history analysis now widespread within the disciplines of economics and political science to shift the unit of analysis from the state to the state year thus expanding greatly both the statistical power of the models being tested and the data demands of those models The goal is to introduce comparative state level postsecondary policy research to a broader audience and to contribute to discussions of both the challenges and the importance of this approach to higher education policy research The book is intended as a resource for researchers in higher education policy and as a text for higher education policy courses It may also appeal to scholars of educational policy as well as higher education policymakers, Today s leaders in higher education are focused on creating multicultural campuses However most higher education and student affairs professionals receive limited training for understanding the complexity of multicultural issues If multiculturalism is to flourish on college campuses education professionals must develop the sensitivity and awareness in affirming relevant multicultural issues and develop the skills needed to offer meaningful services to i all i their students i Multicultural Competence in Student Affairs i is a unique resource that offers student affairs practitioners and faculty a guide that features a model of core competencies that embraces the broad scope of multicultural issues including race class religion gender sexual orientation age and abilities, Despite seeming endless debate and public attention given to the issue for several decades those committed to creating welcoming and engaging campus environments for all students recognize that there is considerably more work to be done and ask Why aren t we there yet and when will we be done br br While our campuses have evolved from being exclusionary and intolerant and publicly espouse the objectives of being welcoming accepting affirming and engaging the data on admissions retention and graduation clearly indicate that these goals have not been achieved br br The contributors to this book seek to offer new insights to improve student affairs emphasizing action that recognizes this is a complex and multi faceted process and beginning with the assertion that without recognizing the influences of privilege and inequality we educators cannot promote truly welcoming environments br br This book focuses on guiding individuals and groups through learning how to have difficult conversations that lead us to act to create more just campuses and provides illustrations of multiple ways to respond to difficult situations It advocates for engaging in fruitful dialogues regarding differing social identities including race ethnicity religion gender and sexual orientation to lead readers through a process that advocates for justice and for taking personal responsibility for contributing to the solution br br The book is framed around the five elements of the process of engaging in difficult conversations that not only advocate for change but also create change self knowledge knowledge of and experiences with others understanding historical and institutional contexts understanding how to change the status quo and transformative action, b Embrace the best practices for initiating multicultural change in individuals groups and institutions b Higher education institutions have begun to take steps toward addressing multicultural issues on campuses but more often than not those in charge of the task have received little to no training in the issues that are paramount in serving culturally diverse students i Creating Multicultural Change on Campus i is a response to this problem offering new conceptualizations and presenting practical strategies and best practices for higher education professionals who want to foster the awareness knowledge and skills necessary for multicultural change on an institutional level In i Creating Multicultural Change on Campus i the authors of the classic text i Multicultural Competence in Student Affairs i delve deep into key concepts in multicultural organizational development guiding readers who want to enact change not just at the individual level but also at the group and institutional levels br br Readers will be introduced to frameworks that are crucial for creating inclusive welcoming and affirming campus environments You ll also find comprehensive examples from several institutions along with specific examples of effective multicultural practices that are useful for real world situations The book br br br Provides the strategies frameworks and expert guidance for recognizing and addressing multicultural issues in institutions of higher learning Offers a rich understanding of both Multicultural Organizational Development MCOD and the Multicultural Change Intervention Matrix MCIM and how these models are important for evaluating environments and outcomes Is appropriate for those who serve students directly as well as higher education leaders and administrators who create professional development programs Is designed as a practical guide and filled with specific examples to help readers apply strategies to their own campuses A much needed resource this book can help lead institutions toward meaningful action that will have a positive impact for all individuals in a student body and the professionals who serve them
