Multicultural Studies Book Donation Focuses on Racial/Ethnic Issues & Women in Higher Ed

The Multicultural Studies Committee has purchased and donated 17 books to the Webster University Library that speak to racial and ethnic issues and well as to topics that focus on women/women of color in higher education including intersectionality, tenure, inequality, equity, and power dynamics.
