This is a quick guide to assist you in finding material on diversity issues in various universities and their units. This will take a few simple steps.
Make your research easier on yourself by using a more specific term or sub-topic than the broad term 'diversity'. Here are some suggestions and these can be narrowed even more:
- Gender (including LGBTQ, transexual, etc.)
- Behaviors (microagression, exclusion, etc.)
- Race or Ethnicity
- Affirmative action
- Equal opportunity or equity
If you are having trouble thinking about some sort of diversity issue, a check of the daily news has plenty of examples! Many student-run newspapers are now available online and can be searched for diversity issues. The archive of the CSUSM student newspaper is available for 1990-2015 as well as current issues and has brought awareness to the campus community on a variety of diversity issues.
The examples here are drawn from our website at CSUSM, but can be used with any university's site.
