Editorial Reviews

"Mutakabbir and Nuriddin¿ know firsthand the discrimination that students can feel when they don¿t conform to religious norms in belief, dress, diet, or custom. This personal knowledge, along with a deep understanding of the research, has produced a book that is both scholarly in its approach but practical in nature. Student affairs practitioners as well as academics will gain immensely from reading it, as the recommendations are timely, sensitive, and doable. Mutakabbir and Nuriddin not only provide guidance on assessing campus religious climates, but they also offer strategies for meeting the diverse and sometimes delicate needs of religious minorities." --From the Series Editor Introduction by Marybeth Gasman & Nelson Bowman III
