Abstract

The editors have chosen to offer the two essays in this section by themselves because we want to underline the importance of a vital task calling us as change agents and community builders. 0. Scott Peck (1987) in The Different Drum writes that the "great enemy of community is exclusivity" (p. 61). We can point to egregious examples of exclusion in our society; but can we clearly see how we ourselves practice exclusivity, even with the best of intentions? If we do recognize the problem, how can we not only change our own behaviors but also promote inclusion across our campuses?
