Address cultural conflict with redesigned learning environment, not policies: Opinion


To reduce cultural conflict, postsecondary leaders must redesign the learning environment instead of trying to address the issue solely through policy and procedure, writes Mike Magee (Minerva University) for the Chronicle of Higher Ed. Magee writes that campuses should be designed to bring diverse groups of students to live and learn together and provide them with the tools to communicate and solve conflict effectively. Magee discusses an example of how this works at Minerva University, where the student academic and residential experience helps students to develop a broader awareness of cultural differences and learn how to solve dilemmas and make connections with each other.
