Rethinking Cultural Competence In Higher Education: An Ecological Framework For Student Development: Ashe Higher Education Report, Volume 42, Number 4
Take a holistic look at an intentional educational ecosystem that builds cultural competence, a critical skill college graduates need for careers and citizenship in a diverse global society
Drawing on the findings of a survey of recent college graduates now working as professionals, the monograph offers leading-edge, integrative models that bring together the multidimensional components of the learning environment including curricular, co-curricular, and service learning, research-based factors contributing to a campus environment that encourages cultural competence, in-depth assessment and analysis of best practices, and concrete recommendations that offer a transformative pathway to the attainment of diversity competence in the undergraduate experience
Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences
Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.
This is the fourth issue of the 42nd volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report
This monograph unpacks the multilayered meanings of cultural competence and offers a term, diversity competence, that is more consistent with the broad spectrum of diversity learning outcomes that occur on campus
