Part II The Demand for Cultural and Social Diversity Chapter 2 Cultural and Social Diversity in the United States: A Compelling National Interest Charles E. Mitchell 1 Introduction This chapter addresses the demand for cultural and social diversity from three perspectives: (1) how those in the public arena have addressed the need to assess and implement such diversity in promoting the successful transition to work, (2) how public organizations throughout the USA have implemented a bureaucracy representative of all cultural and social groups, and (3) how legal confrontations over achieving these objectives through educational access have resulted in the development of policy on cultural and social diversity in academic settings.

Inherent in this famous pronouncement is the promise that all who reside in the USA are ensured equality of opportunity to pursue their life goals to the fullest extent of their abilities, irrespective of cultural or social background. Achievement of this utopian ideal has not been easy. Like many other countries, the United States of America has had to overcome cultural and social biases in its effort to allow equal opportunity for all. The American Dream is still being refined in this respect, and educational opportunity is paramount to its achievement.
