Advancing Diversity in Higher Education
Turner, Caroline S.
Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, v6 n3 p155-157 Sep 2013
This special section of the "Journal of Diversity in Higher Education" ("JDHE") on "Advancing Diversity in Higher Education" emerged from the 2012 Association for the Study of Higher Education Council on Ethnic Participation (ASHE-CEP) Pre-Conference Forum. CEP, a standing committee of ASHE, partnered with the "JDHE" to offer a publication opportunity for authors of articles accepted for presentation at the Forum. All manuscripts submitted by CEP presenters underwent the full peer review process of "JDHE." Forum research articles engaged issues of race or ethnicity, equity, and diversity, as well as topics related to historically underrepresented, underserved, or marginalized populations in higher education. The work of researchers presented here contributes insights for the continued development of an inclusive and nurturing workplace environment for diverse populations of students, faculty, and staff. As such, they build upon the discussion began in a previous "JDHE" special issue related to the critical importance of campus climate in supporting diversity in higher education (Worthington, 2008).
