"This book advances our ability as educators to create inclusive campus communities by first providing information about critical issues and developmental processes for key college student populations, and then providing case studies and discussion questions. The focus on developing critical consciousness is especially powerful as it moves the conversation on diversity beyond mere inclusion to a more substantive dialogue on social justice, action, and identifying and challenging systemic privilege and racism on our college campuses."--Ebelia Hern ndez, Chancellor's Scholar - Associate Professor, Department of Educational Psychology "Rutgers University " "In two words: impressively comprehensive. New professionals and seasoned administrators alike will find much that is useful in this book. The editors have assembled a dynamic constellation of scholars who offer rich insights into the texture and substance of multiculturalism on contemporary college campuses. Anyone who aspires to become a more culturally competent and responsive educator should read this text."--Shaun R. Harper, Graduate School of Education, Africana Studies and Gender Studies, University of Pennsylvania REVIEWS OF THE FIRST EDITION "This is an excellent resourceful book that faculty and administrators can use to enhance multiculturalism on college campuses."--Journal of College Student Development "The second edition sets out, successfully, to give 'greater voice to students who are not part of the dominant cultures'. The format includes clear and succinct case studies that assist in revealing the experiences of each group of these students on college campuses. Authors include discussion questions at the end of their essays to assist in processing the material and to move the conversation forward. Arranged into three perspectival parts with substantive essays addressing 'Awareness of Cultural Issues, ' 'Information on Cultural Populations, ' and 'Critical Consciousness of Cultural Competence, ' the book itself is a model of diversity and inclusion insofar as each essay can be understood as a roadmap for those who are just beginning to engage with the topic of multiculturalism on college campuses or it can serve to enrich and affirm the understandings of those who have been working in the area of student development and multiculturalism."--Reflective Teaching "This volume takes an intersectional approach to college student development by providing a thorough overview of the frameworks, applications, and assessments of multiculturalism. Across their chapters, the authors focus on student development. The bulk of their content is dedicated to racial and ethnic identity development. While a wide variety of student groups are discussed, the editors make a concerted effort to unify the distinct chapters by identifying similarities in different multicultural theories and the shared experiences of various groups of learners. Ultimately, because the book is so application-oriented (e.g., the chapters include resources like case studies, discussion questions, and implementation suggestions), it is particularly useful for student affairs professionals and practitioners. The editors and chapter authors do an excellent job of setting up the theoretical foundations of student development models by defining intersectionality, multiculturalism, and multicultural identity. Multiculturalism on Campus is an especially useful resource for practitioners in these challenging times as higher education institutions continue to wrestle with creating inclusive and affirming campus environments for their increasingly diverse student bodies."--Teachers College Record "Multiculturalism on Campus is a tour de force. In this single volume noted scholars have created an excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate students; a teaching tool for faculty; and, a comprehensive resource for all who strive for multiculturalism and social justice on college campuses."--Paul Shang, Assistant Vice President and Dean of Students, University of Oregon, Past President, ACPA-College Student Educators International
