PERSPECTIVES OF CHANGE AND DIVERSITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Adelphi University (UNITED STATES)
Introduction/Abstract
The Effect of Diversity Mandates: The Case of Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning (Hochradel, Long, Johnson, and Wells, 2010) will be examined. The examination of this case will focus on the mandate initiated in order to increase diversity. The change implementation and methods of change will be based on the success of the mandate. The literature review will include what research says about the benefits of increasing diversity in higher education institutions of learning.
The assumption being made is that there is a lack of diversity among faculty, staff and students on the level of higher education. Lack of diversity is a perpetual issue that begins with students who are not taught diversity in school and then join the workforce as teachers, administrators or school personnel lacking the knowledge or acknowledgement of cultural sensitivity. Thus, implementing diversity training is vital to the educational community.

Rationale
Higher education diversity will be researched in order to determine where and why there are diversity deficiencies among students, faculty, staff and other school personnel. The implementation of change will attempt to bring the “taboo” issue of diversity to the forefront of educational reform. In addition, the hope will be to present the effectiveness of change in terms of diversity so that other institutions of learning may perhaps benefit from the methods of change presented in the literature review.
