Description

This book explores the organizational responses of professional schools and colleges to pressures, demands, requirements, expectations, and incentives related to diversity. The macro-organizational perspective supplies much-needed balance and complexity to traditional depictions of post-secondary institutions as largely self-motivated in their diversity efforts.
