The Chronicle of Higher Education
June 1st, 2015
At the annual National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education,
it’s not hard to get people thinking about diversity and inclusion:
They already are. The challenge for the chief diversity officers, other
administrators, professors, and students who met here last week lies
back home — keeping those ideals on colleagues’ and classmates’ minds
every day, not just when prompted by a complaint or a scandal.
While many colleges now have top-level administrators and offices
devoted to diversity, a hot topic of conversation here was how to make
it a campuswide priority. For all students and employees to feel
included, everyone has to be involved.
