Managing Colleges and Universities: Issues for Leadership

By Allan M. Hoffman; Randal W. Summers | Go to book overview

serve as guides, advisors, even mentors in the first bewildering months in this new land. They can point the way and interpret the rules. They can provide support without compromising independence. Ethnic students have their own culture-related needs associated with adjustment to this new learning community. Multicultural sensitivity helps them accelerate that process and regain their confidence.

Multicultural sensitivity must begin with a commitment to be open to understanding other people's cultural values. Learning about other cultures requires an inquiring, nonjudgmental mind. It requires realizing what others have, not what they lack. It must grant dignity and self-worth to people of other cultures. It is an exploration, not a critique. It looks for broad areas of commonality not just differences. In the end it seeks community. The delivery of cultural sensitive services is a necessary and legitimate dimension of every college and university.
