Developing an Intercultural Responsive Leadership Style for Faculty and Administrators

Editor Description:

College student populations are becoming increasingly more diverse as students from diverse backgrounds have greater access to higher education. Additionally, governing bodies have heightened expectations related to student success, retention, and time to degree, thus holding institutions of higher education more accountable. With a changing student demographic and increased accountability measures, faculty and administrators are seeking effective strategies to enhance intercultural responsiveness among underrepresented populations to support their success.
