This publication is an outgrowth of a cooperative effort by the Association of American Colleges and the University of Maryland to use the World Wide Web to disseminate information about promising diversity programs, courses, and campus life initiatives being developed by colleges and universities around the country. Descriptions of diversity programs at 26 institutions are grouped into five categories: (1) institutional mission and ethics; (2) curriculum and faculty development; (3) intergroup relations and campus life; (4) recruitment, retention, and admissions; and (5) campus-community partnerships. Contact information is also provided for each program. A list of schools participating in the Campus Diversity Initiative program is appended. (DB)
