Preparing Students for Democratic Citizenship in a Multicultural Society: Engaging Diversity through Project Mosaik
Zúñiga, Ximena; Nelson Laird, Thomas F.; Mitchell, Tania D.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v52 n3 p237-249 2015
This study examines whether participation in a diversity initiative, Project MosaiK, helped prepare students to engage and actively address social justice issues in their residence halls. After controlling for background characteristics, findings suggest that the more students participated in Project MosaiK activities, the more likely they were to score higher on measures of multicultural consciousness, capacity for empathy across differences, and motivation to take actions for social justice.
