Higher education practitioners have a unique opportunity to aid students to becoming “fully developed human beings.” This means embracing the challenges of understanding the human condition. The well-being of all humankind is interconnected and as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. so eloquently wrote in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly”. Multiculturalism can provide a welcome and needed means of understanding how the threads of that “single garment of destiny” were woven together and perhaps more importantly, how the tears in that garment might be mended.
