Integrating Diversity and Social Justice into the Curriculum of Colleges and Universities

  • 4:00 PM – 4:55 PM
  • SYKES ROOM 209

The failure of major educational reform efforts to acknowledge the multicultural needs of tomorrow's students illustrates the marginal status that issues of multicultural education, diversity and social justice typically receive. Fortunately, most of the challenges have given rise to a discourse about diversity and social justice that has enhanced student learning and development, faculty development, and administrative practices.
