Demographic Trends in Higher Education, Diversity Lecture
Friday, 22 November 2013
Trinity’s Diversity Lecture Series is one of the ways the College helps to develop cultural awareness and understanding within this Christian community.
The final lecture in November was presented by Dr. Terry Lindsay, associate professor and dean of diversity and intercultural programs at North Park University. Lindsay’s address, “Demographic Trends: Implication for Christian Higher Education,” focused on how Christian institutions need to be aware of and respond to swiftly changing demographics.
Sharing various graphs and statistics, Lindsay covered several topics, including immigration trends, gaps in education, high school drop-out rates, college readiness of underrepresented students, and serving the needs of diverse students.
The Diversity Lecture Series is sponsored by the Office of Ethnic Diversity and Multicultural Programs.
