Today more and more ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse students enroll in our college and university courses. These diverse, multilingual students enrich our campuses and at the same time present challenges. Who are these students? What skills do these diverse students need to be successful in college?

This text provides practical advice on how to assist these students with academic tasks and how to help them to succeed in the academy.
