Mapping Diversity Efforts as Inquiry
Halualani, Rona Tamiko; Haiker, Hugh; Lancaster, Christopher
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v32 n2 p127-136 Apr 2010
In this essay, we discuss the importance for a higher education institution to participate in self-inquiry, or a reflexive practice of identifying where a university is with regard to establishing an embedded campus structure grounded in diversity in terms of values, principles, objectives and goals, outcomes and resource allocations. This process involves taking stock of and mapping current diversity efforts and then analysing such mappings to identify the current status of inclusive excellence at that institution. We refer to this process of inquiry as "mapping diversity efforts" and highlight its value for locating a higher education institution's "actual"--not projected--engagement with, and implementation of, diversity efforts. This essay traces a multi-step effort in creating, designing and implementing the mapping of diversity efforts at San Jose State University; such an effort represents a promising practice for diversity in higher education.
