Search: Materials on Multi-culturalist Approaches

For the past few years, Metro State College in Denver has been in the
process of deepening its commitment to a multi-cultural curriculum. There
has been a rather lively discussion over both the vision and the implimenta-
tion of the program that continues up to the present.

I am interested in information people on the list might be able to
provide on:

a. a FEW well thought-out articles or books giving an overview of the
national movement at the college level to broaden curriculum to include
multi-cultural foci.

b. are there any specific outstanding success stories people might
know where multi-cultural curricula have worked especially well? If
any of you are involved in an institution that has made successfully
made such a shift, I would be interested in knowing what you consider
to have been the key elements to a successful transition.

c. I am not aware that anthro's have contributed much to this issue,
(maybe I am wrong?) although it certainly easily falls within the parameters
(or could) of Cultural/and or Applied Anthro. If there are anthropologists
out there that have done some work on this issue, or if any of you know
bibliographical material specifically from Anthro journals dealing
with this issues, I would appreciate your sharing that info with me
either through the list or personally.
