Council publishes diversity best practices book

discoverThe Council’s newest publication is intended to disseminate proven practices that schools can use to improve the diversity of their student bodies and faculties and the representation of diversity-related content in their curricula.

Diversity: Best Practices is divided into four main sections, covering best practices in curriculum development, faculty recruitment and retention, student recruitment and retention, and campus environment. It also covers the history of ACEJMC’s standard on diversity. A “Sources and Resources” section contains syllabus excerpts and lists of texts, videotapes and websites that contributors recommended.

The book was produced with the support of a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Miami. Researcher and editor Beverly Kees gathered at least one suggestion from every ACEJMC-accredited school (to minimize repetition, not all suggestions were included in the book).

Accredited schools, ACEJMC’s member organizations, members of the Accrediting Committee and representatives to the Accrediting Council each will receive a free copy of the book.

Individuals and other organizations may request a free copy, and additional copies may be ordered for $4 each by contacting:
