Multicultural Education Training Project.

This report describes activities of a one-year, federally supported project at the University of Guam to survey public school and university needs in dealing with a multicultural student population. Local and regional educational professionals (teachers, faculty, administrators) and students were interviewed regarding their views on the region's needs in multicultural education. The survey-interviews with educators focused on perceived needs in the education of a culturally widely divergent student population, anticipated inservice needs, and desired skills and knowledge for future teachers. University students were asked to comment as to what extent the university recognized them as cultural individuals. A follow-up study of graduates was also designed, tested, and enacted. Results of the project were used in the redesign of the College of Education's multicultural education program and the development of a related grant proposal. Renewed interest in multicultural education by college faculty was also observed. (DB)
