About this product
- DescriptionIn a post-9/11 nation that is gripped by race fear, this book presents an approach to diversity that promotes peace and understanding across difference. Discussing studies conducted over an eight-year period, The Intercultural Campus reveals the underlying sources of racial fragmentation on college and university campuses and outlines a new framework for diversity. Citing the results from an invative four-year project that completely transformed the culture of a university, Greg Tanaka describes specific programs that all campuses should implement when admitting diverse classes. Signaling a larger shift for progressives away from binary, essentialized tions of identity to individual agency, or subjectivity, this book advances a social change philosophy based in interdependence and highlights the skills that future U.S. leaders will need to interact successfully with others in our diverse global society.
