College campuses today lead the larger society in identity polemics. More than any other segment of the society, it is college campuses where “diversity” or “multiculturalism” is a cause celebre and often a point of contention and unrest. Students are defined more by differences than by similarities. The larger and more selective the college, the greater the number of advocacy groups focused on particular student populations, with each campus activity appealing to smaller pockets of students. Arthur Levine (2000), president of Teachers College, Columbia University, describes a Korean student who, when asked to describe himself, said “he never thought about the fact that he was Asian until he came to college. In his freshman year, he thought being Asian was the most important aspect of his being. By his junior year, being Korean became his primary selfdescriptor” (p. 17).
