Removing Vestiges: Research-Based Strategies to Promote Inclusion
Kent, Norma Ed.; Frengel, Elizabeth Ed.; Carey, Donna, Ed.
American Association of Community Colleges (NJ1)
"Removing Vestiges" seeks to provide a forum where advocacy and research can be forged into policy direction for community college leaders. This first edition explores four subject areas. Alex Johnson and Audrey Wynn first offer ways for CEOs and presidents to implement American Association of Community Colleges' recent statement on inclusion, a statement intended to state the association's position on diversity and inclusion. In the second, Nan Ottenritter offers a framework that institutions can use to assess their climate for sexual minorities on campus. Jeffrey Ayala Milligan's article examines how cultural infusion of the curriculum or the creation of a critical pedagogy can bring cultural diversity to homogeneous rural areas. In the final article on service learning, Michelle Dunlap looks at how this new approach to scholarship can be used to expose white American students to diverse cultures. Each article contains figures and references.
