Educating a Diverse Nation gives us a compelling narrative, filled with robust research, facts, and recommendations to help colleges and universities better educate the growing population of Americans who will comprise the majority of college students in the decades ahead. Conrad and Gasman have made an extraordinary contribution in studying the work of exemplary minority-serving institutions (MSIs) to educate students for success in all walks of life and professions. This book provides important lessons to inform the rest of American higher education about high-quality, culturally relevant teaching and learning for the twenty-first century.—Martha Kanter, New York University and former U.S. Under Secretary of Education

Conrad and Gasman insightfully take us into the living–learning environments of exemplary minority-serving institutions and highlight a variety of nontraditional approaches to effective pedagogy and culturally relevant practices. Their book is an invaluable asset for educators and institutions looking to generate strategies for enhancing minority student recruitment, retention, and high academic performance.—John Silvanus Wilson, Jr., President, Morehouse College
