Book on Diversity in American Higher Education Features Nyack
In Diversity Matters: Race, Ethnicity, & The Future of Christian Higher Education, Dr. David F. Turk, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Nyack College wrote the chapter, “Campus Case Studies: Transforming Institutions With a Commitment to Diversity,” which was edited and introduced by Dr. Pete C. Menjares, CCCU Senior Fellow for Diversity at Vanguard University of Southern California. The book was released just one year following the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) Diversity Conference held on the Manhattan campus of Nyack College.
Asked about his contribution to the volume, Dr. Turk, who is a member of the CCCU's Commission on Diversity and Inclusion commented, "All of us at Nyack wrote the story. I just recorded it."
Prior to the book being released, Dr. Turk’s chapter was included in an issue of the CCCU publication, CCCU Advance in a column, “On Diversity,” which adapted his essay, “The Nyack Story: More Than Numbers.”
