Description - Promise and Dilemma by Eugene Y. Lowe
Issues of diversity and affirmative action have turned elite higher education in the United States into contested terrain. Rights revolutions in the country have raised hopes that have proved difficult to fulfill. Most particularly, expectations about access and opportunity have collided with widely held beliefs that educational institutions should treat each person fairly as an individual and should promote high academic standards. This collection of essays gathers the reflections of a group of leading educators on whether and how objectives of diversity, equity and excellence can be simultaneously pursued. The essays focus on constructive proposals and on the role of social and political consensus.
