Closer to home, I would like to thank the staff of the Center for Multicultural Education, College of Education, University of Washington, and several of my colleagues at the University of Washington. The Center was the official sponsor of the conference and of this book. Cristine Hinman Chopra, who was my assistant at the Center when the conference was planned and took place, took care of many of the details of planning an international conference. The research assistants in the Center— John J. Juelis, Jennifer Outhouse, and Amrita N. Zahir—completed many tasks that contributed to the success of the conference and the publication of this book. John J. Juelis coordinated the reviews for each chapter. He and Amrita checked citations and references for the chapters and helped me with other editorial tasks when I was preparing the manuscript for submission to the publisher. John J. Juelis, Amrita N. Zahir, and Caryn Park, a graduate student in the Center, helped to correct the copyedited manuscript.
Walter C. Parker, colleague and faculty associate of the Center, was a source of intellectual support during the planning and implementation of the conference. Patricia A. Wasley, dean of the College of Education, is supportive of the Center's work and is helping to disseminate its Bellagio conference findings. Cherry A. McGee Banks, a faculty associate of the Center and my life partner, continues to give me the spiritual support and encouragement I need to keep going.
