Abstract:     
Increasing student awareness of diversity is a core value and goal of many colleges and universities, and is particularly of concern for many Political Science programs. Using surveys administered to instructors and students at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, this article identifies how Political Science instructors incorporate tools to increase student awareness of aspects of diversity such as race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality. The survey data also assesses how effective these are related to student reported outcomes.
