Internationalizing Multiculturalism book coverThe new book, Internationalizing Multiculturalism: Expanding Professional Competencies in a Globalized World, is now available in print. The book, published by the American Psychological Association, is edited by Alliant International University Distinguished Professor Rodney L. Lowman.

It features chapters by many important authors in the field, including many current and former Alliant faculty authors:

  • Dr. Wendy Chung, associate professor, Alliant School of Management in San Diego
  • Dr. Nurcan Ensari, professor, California School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles
  • Dr. Louise Kelly, professor, Alliant School of Management in San Diego

The project was initiated at Alliant during a “thought leaders” meeting of International and Multicultural Education, Research, Intervention, and Training (I-MERIT), sponsored under the leadership of Dr. Kumea Shorter-Gooden, former associate provost in Los Angeles. It was co-funded by a grant from Leadership Worth Following.

This volume reflects efforts to integrate multicultural and international competencies, one of Alliant’s core strengths. It was intentionally written for all professionals but is especially relevant to psychologists, business people and educators.
