The Role of Partnership in Shaping the Diversity Agenda
Siegel, David J.
Tertiary Education and Management, v13 n2 p99-110 Jun 2007
This study examines how external stakeholders, collaborators, and partners help shape the diversity agenda in post-secondary education. Results from a comparative case study analysis of four professional schools (public health, business, social work and engineering) at a large American research university suggest that external social actors are influential in stimulating diversity-related activity and determining how post-secondary organizations address pressures, expectations, demands, requirements and incentives related to diversity.
