Abstract

This article describes the use of narrative to develop multicultural awareness. Faculty were asked to examine their own "internal multiculturalism ": how their various roles and statuses reflect differing and sometimes conflicting cultural imperatives. Findings explore points of connection and conflict experienced by faculty within the university culture and foster the negotiation and understanding of various cultures in all member of the academy.
