|Book Club||When Diversity Drops: Race, Religion, and Affirmative Action in Higher Education
by Julie J. Park*
*Presenting compelling narratives based on an ethnographic study of a Christian student fellowship with a mission of racial reconciliation on one college campus where affirmative action has been banned, the book explores the questions:
- What happens in student life and learning when an institution loses racial diversity among its student population?
- Is racial reconciliation and learning about racial diversity possible without a structural diversity on campus?
Dr. Park has graciously agreed to join the book club discussion via Skype.
The book is available as an eBook via the LUC library. http://pegasus.luc.edu/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=2045356
Tracy Ruppman is also processing the acquisition of one hard copy of the book.
Regular committee meetings are open.
