Alternative Breaks as a Context for Informal Interactions with Diversity
Niehaus, Elizabeth
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n2 p160-174 2016
One of the most frequently touted benefits of higher education is the opportunity to interact with people different from oneself, yet these interactions do not automatically lead to positive outcomes. The purpose of this study is to explore how one particular context for diversity interactions, service-based alternative break programs, may provide the necessary balance of challenge and support for students to learn from diversity.
