This document is intended to provide the higher education community with information from recent and classic research studies that can serve as a guide to improving the climate for diversity on campus. The first section of the report examines the literature on campus climate for diversity, the experiences of various racial/ethnic groups, and the effect of campus climate educational outcomes. Following sections (1) set out the research framework; (2) examine the historical legacy of inclusion and exclusion; (3) examine the impact of structural diversity resulting from the increased complexity of diverse student enrollments and problems associated with diversifying faculty; (4) review the psychological climate and the impact of discrimination and perceptions of climate on students; (5) examine the behavioral dimensions of institutional climate, including student involvement and intergroup relations, classroom environment, curricular change, campus race relations and social interaction, and participation in racial/ethnic student organizations and minority support programs; (6) link institutional climate for diversity with the general learning environment; (7) provide some principles for improving campus climate for diversity; (8) give some examples of current efforts at various institutions; and (9) conclude with a plan for action in which everyone has a role in improving campus climate. (Contains approximately 250 references.) (CH)
