Diversity in Retrospect: Understanding Our Past to Create Our Future
Civil Rights milestones, like the recent commemoration of the March on Washington and the upcoming anniversary of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, inspire contemporary optimism toward achieving equality. But ongoing concerns about access to college for historically underprivileged communities, and the vulnerability of diversity affairs, remind us that higher education still strives to fulfill its promise as a social equalizer. 2014’s theme, “Diversity in Retrospect: Understanding Our Past to Create Our Future,” provides opportunities for higher education professionals, from academic and student affairs, to reflect on the historical victories and ongoing challenges that define multicultural educational efforts in multiple sectors of higher education.
