From the #BlackLivesMatter movement to the LGBTQ community, the words “diversity” and “inclusion” are splashed across headlines daily. In addition to being showcased in media, the challenges of how to respond to the growing concept of intersectionality (i.e. the overlapping of social identities that causes discrimination and/or oppression) is greatly increasing in higher education.

U.S. campuses are seeing a growing diversity in their classrooms leaving researchers to grapple with how to respond to the culturally and internationally diverse students. The previous “melting pot” metaphor has shifted to the “salad bowl” for understanding diverse student backgrounds without “melting” them together. While international students represent a significant source of revenue for U.S. campuses, insight into whether these students are enjoying equal benefits is still emerging. Dr. Debra Ferdinand-James, contributing author of Privacy and Security Policies in Big Data, will examine curriculum responsiveness to growing ethnic student diversity on U.S campuses. Additionally, Dr. Ferdinand-James will also share her personal experiences as an international student from the Caribbean in helping to give a voice to this underrepresented group.

Topics covered include:
  • Multiculturalism
  • Curriculum Internationalization
  • Within-Stage Mixed Model
  • Cultural Insensitivity
  • Faculty Diversity Training
  • Ethnocentrism and Critical Race Theory
  • Campus Diversity Policies
