Student Affairs and Higher Education Policy Issues Related to Multiracial Students
Kellogg, Angela; Niskode, Amanda Suniti
New Directions for Student Services, n123 p93-102 2008
Race-based policies and programs for higher education were mainly based on the needs and interests of monoracial students. Until recently, federal policies as well as campus practices have reflected this mind-set. This article provides an overview of U.S. national policy regarding racial data collection and reporting, including implications for campuses. It also discusses how to expand thinking beyond monoracial categories through improving the infrastructure of programs and services on campus and reexamining affirmative action policies to ensure the consideration of multiracial students.
