A highly diverse student population in cultural and educational background, in age, in aspiration and goals, and in levels of basic academic skills has brought onto the American college campus many of the social problems that beset a pluralistic society. Racial and ethnic tensions, and a heightened gender consciousness, for example, have altered the college curriculum and impacted college life and activities. The introduction of policies, such as affirmative action, and of new academic programs in remedial skills and ethnic and gender studies has embroiled higher education in social, political and legal controversies.
