Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis explored the experiences of four Student Affairs practitioners working within Multicultural Affairs (MA). The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine how professionals within MA offices were developing and conducting assessment as well as identify barriers they faced and best practices used. Data for this study was gathered through four semi-structured interviews with the participants. The coding process led to the following four themes (a) shifting cultures: bringing assessment to the forefront of the work, (b) people power: building a structure to support assessment, (c) communicating the value of multicultural affairs through assessment, and (d) grappling with how to produce assessment. Based on the findings of this study, the author suggests various steps professionals in MA could take to strengthen their work in assessment. This study begins to fill the current gap in literature; on how professionals in MA are developing and implementing assessment.
