Addressing Diversity on College Campuses: Changing Expectations and Practices in Instructional Leadership

Angela Chen

Abstract


The increasing diversity evident across all facets of American society is creating opportunities as well as challenges for instructional leaders across the nation’s postsecondary institutions. Racial and ethnic diversity and the attendant challenges and benefits of multiculturalism in society are more awareness in higher education. This study synthesizes the issues of Diversity in Higher Education Institutions and ethnically diverse university environments in a U.S. context and effective practices in Instructional Leadership based on that work to help administrators to find an effective way for future practice. In this way, the expected outcome is the creation of opportunities for underrepresented minorities so that all students can reach their greatest potential.
