Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today’s leaders in higher education are focused on creating multicultural campuses. However, most higher education and student affairs professionals receive limited training for understanding the complexity of multicultural issues.

If multiculturalism is to flourish on college campuses, education professionals must develop the sensitivity and awareness in affirming relevant multicultural issues and develop the skills needed to offer meaningful services to all their students.

Multicultural Competence in Student Affairs is a unique resource that offers student affairs practitioners and faculty a guide that features a model of core competencies that embraces the broad scope of multicultural issues including race, class, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, and abilities.

Written by Raechele Pope, Amy Reynolds, and John Mueller–experts in the fields of student affairs and multiculturalism–this important book is based on the authors’ years of practice, teaching, research, and consulting. Comprehensive in scope, Multicultural Competence in Student Affairs contains the most current theory, useful models, and research-based findings.

Multicultural Competence in Student Affair offers student affairs professionals the information they need and:

  • Explores the seven core competencies needed for effective and ethical practice
  • Contains scenarios that illustrate the ways multicultural issues affect the core competencies
  • Describes the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed for effective student services work with multicultural issues
  • Explains the administration, management, and leadership skills professionals need to manage effectively in a multicultural environment
  • Outlines the helping relationships and interpersonal skills needed to work effectively with students and other professionals
  • Explains how diversity can influence teaching and training

In addition, this much-needed resource is filled with illustrative examples of best practices and useful case studies that will help professionals work effectively with a culturally diverse student population.

Book News Annotation:

Three American specialists in the fields of students affairs and higher education address the awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary for student affairs practitioners and faculty to become more multiculturally competent. Designed as a guide for university and college student affairs professionals, the text offers a model of core competencies that infuses multicultural issues, extends significant work from the counseling psychology multicultural literature to the student affairs profession, and presents specific examples of effective practice and useful case studies in which multicultural awareness and knowledge is applied.

Praise for Multicultural Competence in Student Affairs

"Raechele Pope, Amy Reynolds, and John Mueller break new ground in presenting a clear and comprehensive picture of what multicultural competence actually looks like in student affairs practice. Their suggestions for developing multicultural attitudes, knowledge, and skills are imminently practical and very much needed."

–Nancy J. Evans, professor and program coordinator, Higher Education Program, Iowa State University

"Given the state of affairs in our world today related to the misunderstanding of cultures, this is a must-read for those of us in higher education who say we are making a difference in the lives of students."

–Gregory Roberts, executive director and senior operating officer, American College Personnel Association

"The authors go far beyond the basic and instead present complex competencies related to awareness, knowledge, and skills for model multicultural practice. Further, the case studies are an excellent resource for multicultural professional development."

–Marylu McEwen, College Student Personnel Program, University of Maryland, College Park
