Multiculturalism Incorporated: Student Perceptions
Bruch, Patrick L.; Higbee, Jeanne L.; Siaka, Kwabena
Innovative Higher Education, v32 n3 p139-152 Oct 2007
Multicultural education has transformed higher education both in terms of research and in terms of student experiences. Given the complexity of our institutions, the overall effects of these transformations are mixed. Building on the successes and strengths of multicultural education as it is currently incorporated in institutions and programs will involve better understanding how it is perceived, positively and negatively, by those who are experiencing it first hand. In this article we seek to contribute to this reflection through a discussion of a survey of students' perceptions of multiculturalism in a large first-year program in a research university.
