For COMMUNITY LEADERS
Multicultural education is the process by which the structure of educational institutions is adjusted to provide equitable accommodations. Similar initiatives include a wide variety of programs and practices related to educational equity, women, ethnic groups, language minorities, low-income groups, and people with disabilities. These ideas implanted at the college level lead to transformation and societal changes that embrace diversity. Communication is essential. Human potential is articulated through a thriving diversity of cultures.
What is Multiculturalism?
In 2015, Dr. Howard-Bostic organized and facilitated a workshop entitled, “From Diversity to Multiculturalism” workshop. These sociological workshops include Shakti Butler’s documentary, “Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity” to explore dialogue about racial inequities.
