Since what students say about professors of color and diversity courses was so critical to shaping the campus’s racial atmosphere, this chapter looks more deeply at it. The process by which these professors and courses shape the racial atmosphere of Protestant colleges and universities is allowing open, honest discussions among students, which lead to more awareness of cultural differences and acknowledgment of the lingering effects of racism. But when such professors and courses are seen as sources of hostility toward majority group students, then they can create more racial tension, instead of productive dialogue. Professors, courses, and other diversity initiatives that can create racial dialogue and awareness should also be able to generate a positive effect.

Keywords:   racial dialogue, professors of color, diversity courses, cultural tool kit, structural racism, student-led multicultural organizations
