Looking for practical tips and useful guidelines for designing and implementing successful multicultural initiatives? This resource will help you to set up a program and/or a set of strategies that promotes skill development to better manage difference on a personal, institutional, community, or societal level.

It also introduces “diversity as a value versus diversity as a good” as a conceptual lens for which to view multicultural initiatives. Using this conceptual lens will assist educators in identifying the philosophical foundation of a given initiative. College educators can ask themselves the fundamental question—Is their multicultural initiative grounded in surface-level outcomes or in far-reaching change?

By sharing concrete examples of multicultural initiatives, the authors in this sourcebook are inviting readers into a conversation that might spark change or a new initiative on the reader’s own campus.

This is the 144th volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly series. An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.
