Diversity Digest is a quarterly newsletter published by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and part of Diversity Works, a new initiative supported by grants from the Ford Foundation to AAC&U and the University of Maryland at College Park.

Diversity Digest is available both in this World Wide Web version and in a print version that is being distributed to over 14,000 individuals at over 3,000 colleges and universities across the U.S. It is designed to enable campus practitioners to facilitate a diversity agenda:

Diversity Works views human diversity as a source of societal resilience and educational vitality. Its purpose is to help higher education undo the legacies of separation and exclusion on campus and educate students who are both prepared and inspired to contribute to the advance of democratic inclusion, social justice and meaningful equality. Diversity Works is a family of projects that provides resources to colleges and universities that view diversity as a compelling educational priority and institutional commitment, important for every campus, every learner and the wider society.

Diversity Digest is specifically designed to:

  1. broadly illuminate the scope, accomplishments and educational value of the campus diversity movement; and

  2. help practitioners learn to effectively articulate and communicate the educational value and success of their local diversity initiatives.

Published quarterly beginning in Fall 1996, Diversity Digest will provide practitioners with readily available information about succesful diversity initiatives around the country and will cover such topics as:

  • Institutional Leadership and Commitment
  • Curriculum Transformation
  • Faculty Involvement
  • Student Experience
  • Campus-Community Connections
  • Diversity Research
  • Making Diversity News
