Abstract or Summary
  • Multicultural curriculum, as a facet of multicultural education is not a new topic in higher education. Although there are many theories that describe multicultural curriculum (Banks, 1997b; Bennett, 2007), and a multitude of ideas and suggestions for best practices, several studies show there is not overwhelming faculty support for or implementation of multicultural curriculum in the college classroom, (Lindholm, Szelényi, Hurtado, and Korn , 2005; Maruyama & Moreno, 2000; Mayhew & Grunwald, 2004; Milem, 2001). This study explored how faculty members at a large, public, research university understand (a) the role of multicultural components in course curricula, (b) the rationale for, as well as the perceived challenges of implementing these components, and (c) personal and academic experiences that impact these views. Themes emerged from this research that offer interesting implications for faculty and administrators.
