Diversity Education across the Undergraduate Curriculum: Student Perspectives
Baillargeon, Jane
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Idaho
This qualitative study uses narrative inquiry methodologies informed by Indigenous research methods to examine the changes in students' perspectives of diversity, including race, ethnicity, gender, religion, politics, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, physical and cultural diversity, as they are exposed to the "other" in their diversity-focused general education courses. This research uses reflection and stories, interviewing, and focus groups to determine how students' perspectives on diversity have changed over time as a result of the curricular and co-curricular activities. Document analysis and faculty interviews provide the context for examining the students' perspectives on their changing positions, as well as faculty concerns for teaching diversity courses. The study captures a range of student perspectives on the pedagogical intentions and impact of diversity education on student learning, as well as the faculty perspective on teaching to a diversity learning outcome in general education courses.
