As recognized by Schmidt(2005) and Dumas-Hines et al (2001)many institutions of higher learning are facing the challenges of finding ways to diversify their campuses. This work by leading minority educators aims to answer the challenge by creating philosophical statements that reflect a national consensus , setting goals to diversify students and faculty, examining best practices, and implementing activities and action plans. The authors discuss how both historically majority and minority institutions need to broaden and deepen their efforts. Attention is paid to Latino/ Asian-Pacific Islander faculty and student populations and motivations. Action plans that emphasize incentives and transnational and global realities are discussed.This work discusses past research, emphasizes present day opportunity and planning and discusses potential academic solutions to the pressing issue of diversity in both classroom and faculty offices. Contributors to the work include Professors Walter Crockett, Mark Hardy, Arthur Jefferson, Della Posey, John Sullivan and Darlene Thurston.Market: EDUCATION: Curriculum Development, Policy, Instructional Strategies, Evaluative Techniques, Minority Studies, Afro-American/Black Studies, Latino Studies, and Educational Planning
