The first edition of this book constituted a comprehensive resource for students of higher education, faculty, higher education administrators and student affairs leaders engaging with multiculturalism and diverse populations on college campuses. It was one of the first texts to gather in a single volume the related theories, assessment methods, and environmental and application issues pertinent to the study and practice of multiculturalism, while also offering approaches to enhancing multicultural programming and culturally diverse campus environments.

This second edition retains the structure and vision of the first, introducing readers to the key theories and models for understanding the complexity of the students they serve, and for reflecting on their own values and motivations. It provides an array of case studies, discussion questions, examples of best practice, and recommendations about resources for use in the classroom.

This edition includes a new chapter on intersectionality, updates several chapters, presents a number of new cultural frameworks and updated best practices for creating an inclusive environment for marginalized groups, and expands the third section of the book on cultural competent practice.

Reviews & Endorsements:
“The second edition sets out, successfully, to give ‘greater voice to students who are not part of the dominant cultures’. The format includes clear and succinct case studies that assist in revealing the experiences of each group of these students on college campuses. Authors include discussion questions at the end of their essays to assist in processing the material and to move the conversation forward.

Arranged into three perspectival parts with substantive essays addressing ‘Awareness of Cultural Issues,’ ‘Information on Cultural Populations,’ and ‘Critical Consciousness of Cultural Competence,’ the book itself is a model of diversity and inclusion insofar as each essay can be understood as a roadmap for those who are just beginning to engage with the topic of multiculturalism on college campuses or it can serve to enrich and affirm the understandings of those who have been working in the area of student development and multiculturalism.”
- Reflective Teaching
“This volume takes an intersectional approach to college student development by providing a thorough overview of the frameworks, applications, and assessments of multiculturalism. Across their chapters, the authors focus on student development. The bulk of their content is dedicated to racial and ethnic identity development. While a wide variety of student groups are discussed, the editors make a concerted effort to unify the distinct chapters by identifying similarities in different multicultural theories and the shared experiences of various groups of learners. Ultimately, because the book is so application-oriented (e.g., the chapters include resources like case studies, discussion questions, and implementation suggestions), it is particularly useful for student affairs professionals and practitioners.

The editors and chapter authors do an excellent job of setting up the theoretical foundations of student development models by defining intersectionality, multiculturalism, and multicultural identity. Multiculturalism on Campus is an especially useful resource for practitioners in these challenging times as higher education institutions continue to wrestle with creating inclusive and affirming campus environments for their increasingly diverse student bodies.”
