This paper includes a proposed model for working with diverse students both in the classroom and as faculty mentors. This paper aims to provide guidelines on creating a collaborative learning community, helping students engage in cultural self-awareness and mentoring minority students.


As a conceptual piece, this manuscript is a working model which has been implemented in instructor pedagogy for the past five years.


Support for this model primarily comes from student evaluations and feedback.


This manuscript will provide valuable teaching tools and insight into multicultural pedagogy.
