IME 728 - Women of Color in Higher Education (3)

An introduction to the little known history of women of color in higher education. In order to develop a basis for understanding how the current situation in higher education impacts upon the planning and participation of women of color in higher education, a brief excursion into the history of all women in education in the United States will be provided, followed by a review of the literature extant regarding the roles of women of African American, Asian American, Hispanic-Latin American and Native American Indian ancestry in education as learners, teachers, administrators and scholars.
