Diversity Blueprint: A Planning Manual for Colleges and Universities.
Maryland Univ., College Park.; Association of American Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
This guide uses the planning process at the University of Maryland, College Park, as an example of comprehensive campus-wide planning for institutional and programmatic diversity goals. Five planning principles are identified: (1) accountability, (2) inclusiveness, (3) shared responsibility, (4) evaluation, and (5) institutionalization. Chapters are organized thematically, highlighting diversity programs and institutional priorities that have been created at the University of Maryland based on the five planning principles as applied to the following five institutional planning priorities: (1) leadership and systemic change; (2) recruitment, retention, and affirmative action; (3) curriculum transformation; (4) campus-community connections; and (5) faculty, staff, and student involvement. The structure of the manual mirrors that of DiversityWeb, a Web site that offers good practices and a planning format for institutions working together on diversity efforts. Inserts and sidebars throughout the guide provide practical tips and leadership statements of individuals at various institutions. Appended are brief descriptions of programs at other institutions and a list of the web sites referred to in the manual. (DB)
