Section II gives an in-depth look at a sampling of content units presented during the Institute. Section III highlights faculty who attended Institute training and the resulting implementation of the strategies and student feedback; it also showcases a multicultural assessment instrument, a useful tool for determining if a course is multicultural. Section IV presents a variety of transformed courses from six colleges within the university.
