From the Publisher

Diversity is defined as those numerous elements of difference between groups of people that play significant roles in social institutions, including (but not limited to) race and ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, and culture. Since doctoral degree recipients go on to assume roles as faculty and educators, diversity in doctoral programs is significant. By supporting graduate diversity across the academic disciplines, universities ensure that the nation’s intellectual capacities and opportunities are fully realized.

The authors consider diversity broadly from multiple perspectives, from race and ethnicity to institutional type, academic discipline, and national origin. They demonstrate how diversity operates through these venues and definitions, and hope to stimulate a conversation about a key aspect of  American higher education.

This volume is the 163rd volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Higher Education. Addressed to presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses, New Directions for Higher Education provides timely information and authoritative advice about major issues and administrative problems confronting every institution.

That’s particularly true for young people who come from families unfamiliar with the process. One place where more colleges could help ease the transition from school to the workf

How to Find a Top-Value College

WHAT DO YOU value most in a college? According to a new survey of 3,500 college students and parents by MONEY and Barnes & Noble College, families care most that schools help students develop the critical-thinking skills needed to succeed in a complex world and prep graduates for fulfilling careers, not simply jobs with a high salary. And families want those benefits at a price they can truly afford. More than half of the respondents with a student now in college said they rejected schools because they were too expensive, and those who wish they had chosen a different institution most commonly

Liberal Arts, Liberal Paychecks

STUDYING LIBERAL ARTS is a one-way ticket to Barista-ville, right? Not necessarily. While you may know a few recent English majors who struggled to find well-paying jobs, salary data show that graduates of four-year liberal arts colleges ultimately tend to earn more than the average college grad. New graduates of these schools start at roughly the same salaries as other college graduates, according to surveys by PayScale.com. But once they’re about 15 years into their careers, they report average pay of about $80,000 a year—$6,000 more than college grads in general, PayScale says. One reas
