Overview

Democratic Education in an Age of Difference addresses the need for colleges and universities to design educational experiences that promote the objectives of a free society while recognizing and embracing difference. The authors detail some of the experiments taking place across American campuses—among them, learning communities, residential communities, and public service—and reveal how each approach fosters the development of democratic sensibility, citizenship skills, and multicultural appreciation. The book provides an in-depth analysis of many of these exemplary programs and offers educators models that are adaptable to the wide variety of campus environments.
