about

The contributors to Race and Higher Education guide educators toward an understanding of how changes in the student population call for new approaches to classroom instruction, and address the need for new pedagogical practices in increasingly diverse college classrooms. Over the last few decades, U.S. colleges and universities have witnessed increasing diversity in their student bodies. Yet faculty members, operating on the notion that one pedagogy fits all students, continue to employ traditional modes of instruction. This adherence to outdated pedagogies has created potentially harmful learning environments for all students—and particularly for students of color.
Race and Higher Education addresses this persistent problem, guiding educators toward a better understanding of how changes in the student population have resulted in the need for new approaches to classroom instruction. By including voices from inside classrooms along with analyses from scholarly researchers, this volume provides college and university teachers, administrators, students, and scholars with a critical instrument for improving higher education.
This timely volume presents indispensable perspectives on changes we need to introduce into our college and university classrooms in order to enrich those classes and enhance the academic achievement of minority students. Race and Higher Education is a must read for all teachers, administrators, and students who have a stake in the ever-greater diversity of our colleges and universities. — Dean Whitla, Director, National Campus Diversity Project, Harvard Graduate School of Education
This is an informed, balanced, carefully researched series of essays on a timely and important topic. It offers clear insights into the benefits and problems of racial diversity in higher education.— John B. Williams, College of Education, University of Maryland
