  1. Democratic education in an age of difference : redefining citizenship in higher education

    Guarasci, Richard
    1st ed. - San Francisco : Jossey-Bass Publishers, ©1997.

    Over the past two decades, American campuses have become embroiled in debates and controversies over multiculturalism, curriculum, free speech, and other issues of social, ethnic, sexual, and racial differences. But out of this turbulence some exciting, innovative experiments have emerged to show students and academic leaders that there are promising maps for bridging acknowledged differences and creating a dynamic new unity behind the principles of democracy. Democratic Education in an Age of Difference details some of those experiments - among them learning communities, residential communities, and public service - and reveals how each approach fosters the development of democratic sensibility, citizenship skills, and multicultural fluency."An excellent resource for faculty and student affairs professionals in all segments of higher education who want to better understand their mutual relationships and responsibilities in preparing students for a pluralist democracy." - Gwen Dungy, executive director, NASPA This book addresses the need for colleges and universities to design educational experiences that promote the objectives of a free society while recognizing and embracing difference. The authors detail some of the experiments taking place across American campuses and reveal how each approach fosters the development of democratic sensibility, citizenship skills, and multicultural appreciation.
