Trent, Allen; Rios, Francisco; Antell, Judith; Berube, William; Bialostok, Steven; Cardona, Dolores; Paradis, Edward; Rush, Timothy
Equity & Excellence in Education, v36 n3 p213-224 Sep 2003
This article describes and analyzes institutional and college efforts at the University of Wyoming (UW) to address diversity issues and promote multicultural perspectives in a variety of contexts. The UW college of education (COE), a focus of the article, is engaged in strategic efforts to make the preparation of teachers a university-wide responsibility. The described initiatives illustrate both successes and shortcomings in pursuit of the authors' diversity-related aims. The authors utilize Davidman's (1994) six "goals for multicultural education" as a framework to analyze and critique ongoing diversity related activities. This formative analysis is used to determine and guide future actions. (Contains 1 note and 1 table.)
