Abstract:

"The Diversity Challenge - the largest and most comprehensive study to date on college campus diversity - synthesizes over five years' worth of research by an interdisciplinary team of experts to explore how a highly diverse environment and policies that promote cultural diversity affect social relations, identity formation and a variety of racial and political attitudes. The result is a case study of the ways in which individuals grow and groups interact in a world where ethnic and racial difference is the norm."--Jacket.
