This volume reviews the trends in professional continuing education, including the major players - professional associations, commercial vendors, proprietary schools, not-for-profit organizations, and more - partnerships between the academy and employers, and what makes continuing education programs successful.

The professional continuing education market in the United States continues to grow. U.S. employers spent more than $51 billion annually on employee training in the 1990s. This monograph reviews the recent literature and focuses on the reasons for the huge expansion of the professional continuing education market: competitive world economies that are technology-driven; the modern citizen who has family and job demands; the constantly evolving technology that affects both work and learning; and the world of higher education that is poised to participate in the community and, in turn, generate additional revenues.

This is volume 32, number 2, of the ASHE Higher Education Report, a bi-monthly journal published by Jossey-Bass.

From the Back Cover:

Intergroup dialogue promotes student engagement across cultural and social divides on college campuses through a face-to-face, interactive, and facilitated learning experience that brings together twelve to eighteen students from two or more social identity groups over a sustained period of time. Students in intergroup dialogue explore commonalities and differences; examine the nature and impact of discrimination, power, and privilege; and find ways of working together toward greater inclusion, equality, and social justice.

Intergroup dialogue is offered as a cocurricular activity on some campuses and as a course or part of a course on others. The practice of intergroup dialogue is considered a substantive and meaningful avenue for preparing college graduates with the knowledge, commitment, and skills essential for living and working in a diverse yet socially stratified society. The research evidence supports the promise of intergroup dialogues to meet its educational goalsóconsciousness raising, building relationships across differences and conflicts, and strengthening individual and collective capacities to promote social justice.

This volume outlines the theory, practice, and research on intergroup dialogue. It also offers educational resources to support the practice of intergroup dialogue. Addressing faculty, administrators, student affairs personnel, students, and practitioners, this volume is a useful resource for anyone implementing intergroup dialogues in higher education.
