We need to rethink our approach to diversity on college campuses. Unfortunately, since I started calling for a new approach a decade ago, not much has changed.
Yes, colleges have brought numbers of foreign students to campus (a good thing), and they have partnered with organizations that bring a group of diverse children to the college. Yet, the fact remains we have not addressed the basic problem for students at risk: Roughly half of those children are lost well before colleges focus on them.
