Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work, v20 n3 p240-257 2011
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of diversity infusion modules provided to university students in a predominantly white homogeneous community. A mixed-method approach using a pre-post retrospective design was used to measure attitudes, behaviors, and knowledge about diversity issues, and included a comparison group (total N = 179). Although the results indicated improvement for students that received the infusion modules, the effects of past experiences with diversity appear to have limited the effectiveness of the infusion. Recommendations for infusing diversity content in higher education programs in communities where exposure to diverse groups is limited are provided. (Contains 3 tables.)
