As the World Turns : Implications of Global Shifts in Higher Education for Theory, Research and Practice Hardback

Edited by Walter R. Allen, Marguerite Bonous-Hammarth, Robert T. Teranishi

Part of the Advances in Education in Diverse Communities: Research Policy and Praxis series

Description

"As the World Turns" examines two of the major problems confronting higher education in this modern world: access to higher education remains a persistent problem for disadvantaged students around the world; universities that are highly segregated by race, culture, language, nationality, or immigration status have lower achievement for disadvantaged students - who are also more often targets of discrimination.

This volume compares discriminated, underrepresented and excluded groups in universities around the globe; identifying personal, group, institutional and societal factors related to persistent inequality.

Through a consortium of international scholars, the chapters present studies on minority student experiences and achievement, asking whether and how universities: exhibit difference, diversity and inequality; integrate multiple social groups; encourage respect between diverse communities; and use diversity to enhance student learning.

This volume demonstrates how diversity and equity help advance academic excellence in global higher education.
