Description

This monograph is limited in scope by a number of factors, not the least of which is the multifaceted nature of diversity. The editors have made a conscious effort to bring in as many definitions and perspectives on diversity as possible from within the membership of the National Collegiate Honors Council. We are pleased that the resulting essays provide the opportunity to explore the issues of misrepresentation and underrepresentation for African American, disabled, Latina/o, international, and first-generation college students in honors. The following chapters also make a number of suggestions for curricular and programmatic approaches to incorporate diversity in practice in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class, and religious/cultural practices.
