Diversity and Inclusion on Campus
Supporting Students of Color in Higher Education
This new and updated second edition of Diversity and Inclusion on Campus: Supporting Students of Color in Higher Education provides an exploration of the range of college experiences, from gaining access to higher education to successfully persisting through degree programs. By bridging research, theory, and practice related to the ways that peers, faculty, administrators, staff, and institutions can and do influence racially and ethnically diverse students’ experiences, Winkle-Wagner and Locks examine how and why it is imperative to have an understanding of the issues that affect students of color in higher education.
This new edition also includes features such as:
- New case studies and examples throughout that allow readers to take institutional-level and student-level approaches to the chapter topics
- Updated citations and theory across chapters
- New topical coverage, including discussion of college affordability, an exploration of a variety of institution types, and the role of merit in maintaining and perpetuating racial inequality in higher education
- End-of-chapter questions that encourage readers to explore chapter concepts in more detail
This second edition is an invaluable resource for future and current higher education and student affairs practitioners working towards full inclusion and participation for students of color in higher education.
