Teaching and learning are so much more forceful when approached as collective endeavors, not as individualistic acts, and this is no less true when teaching and learning towards equity, diversity, and inclusion, as beautifully illustrated in Breaking Down Silos. Burrell Storms, Donovan, Williams, and colleagues share their experiences working across disciplines and beyond the typical boundaries of academic instruction, mining them for insights about the challenges and the unexpected possibilities, and in doing so, raise the bar for what higher education should be and do.--Kevin Kumashiro, author of The Seduction of Common Sense: How the Right has Framed the Debate on America's Schools
Breaking Down Silos makes a critical contribution to the literature on diversity, equity and inclusion, demonstrating the extent to which fostering student success across all types of institutions requires faculty innovation, courageous leadership and meaningful collaboration between academic and student affairs. In the process, each of the contributors creates a roadmap for transforming higher education in profound and lasting ways.--Lynn Pasquerella, PhD, president, Association of American Colleges & Universities
This book will have impact beyond the authors' original target audience! The nation's music schools, symphony orchestras, and symphonic composers could all benefit from this book. The chapters on community engagement, implicit bias, divergent learning styles, and critical consciousness, among others, is instructive for those who are thinking about bringing greater diversity into the classical music arena.--Glenda Price, PhD, President Emeritus, Marygrove College; Vice Chair, Detroit Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors
