Suggestions for Protestant Colleges

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents practical advice for faculty and administrators of Protestant colleges and universities who want to generate more racial diversity. It suggests establishing a curriculum that deals with issues of racial diversity and seeking opportunities to create productive dialogue. Protestant educational institutions must also prepare to deal with professors not committed to addressing issues of diversity, since such professors feed students’ resistance toward such a dialogue. Administrators should also encourage the development of multicultural student organizations that promote interracial dialogue. Although the importance of personal relationships to white students may not easily generalize to non-Protestant campuses, the importance of diversity courses and professors of color probably does.

Keywords: protestant colleges and universities; diverse curriculum; diversity initiatives; professors of color; multicultural student organizations; non-protestant campuses; structrualism
