Looking Back and Moving Forward: Future Directions for Diversity Research in Student Affairs
Pope, Raechele L.; Mueller, John A.; Reynolds, Amy L.
Journal of College Student Development, v50 n6 p640-658 Nov-Dec 2009
The purpose of this article is to review the extant student affairs diversity literature to better understand the trends and development that have occurred over time. By assessing the trends, scope, and direction of the multicultural literature, perhaps student affairs professionals will be better able to capitalize deliberately on the important findings of research and address inadequacies and limitations in future scholarship. The authors also hope that the broader community of higher education scholars and practitioners can benefit from the insight and suggestions gained from this review.
