This article describes some of the issues surrounding cultural diversity in higher education in nursing.
The representation of minority faculty in higher education in general, and in nursing education in particular, is inadequate to support the needs of students, faculties, and the institutions.
Examples of common concerns and dilemmas faced by minority faculty demonstrate the urgent need for change to enhance the academic environment for minorities.
Because the numbers of minority faculty in higher education are unlikely to change substantially within the next few years, the authors present faculty consultation as a strategy to support the cultural diversity mission of the college.
