About the Author

Clifton Conrad is Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor and Professor of Higher Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Marybeth Gasman is Judy and Howard Berkowitz Professor of Education at the University of Pennsylvania and author, with Clifton Conrad, of Educating a Diverse Nation (Harvard). She is a regular contributor to the New York Times, Washington Post, and Chronicle of Higher Education. Gasman was honored by the White House in 2015 and was selected in 2018 by Education Week as one of the ten most influential voices in education.


Educating a Diverse Nation gives us a compelling narrative, filled with robust research, facts, and recommendations to help colleges and universities better educate the growing population of Americans who will comprise the majority of college students in the decades ahead. Conrad and Gasman have made an extraordinary contribution in studying the work of exemplary minority-serving institutions (MSIs) to educate students for success in all walks of life and professions. This book provides important lessons to inform the rest of American higher education about high-quality, culturally relevant teaching and learning for the twenty-first century. -- Martha Kanter, New York University and former U.S. Under Secretary of Education
Conrad and Gasman insightfully take us into the living-learning environments of exemplary minority-serving institutions and highlight a variety of nontraditional approaches to effective pedagogy and culturally relevant practices. Their book is an invaluable asset for educators and institutions looking to generate strategies for enhancing minority student recruitment, retention, and high academic performance. -- John Silvanus Wilson, Jr., President, Morehouse College
