Why Ethnic Studies Are Important

With all the discussion regarding ethnic studies in the news today, I’d like to share an excellent article via Diverse Issues in Higher Education regarding Asian American studies. While the article focuses on Asian Americans – it provides some interesting perspectives on the importance of ethnic studies in general. Most noteworthy is the perspectives of today’s college students — particularly those of multicultural and diverse backgrounds.

These are the students you are recruiting today – are you in tune with their perspectives?
