Student populations today are more diverse than ever before. Ensuring that each student is meaningfully included and successful is a challenge for teachers, instructors, administrators, and others involved in the educational process. Differences in ability levels, ethnicity, cultural background, and gender identity, among other factors, can provide learning environments with a rich kaleidoscope of features. With inclusive leadership and practice, student diversity can add value to the learning environment, providing opportunities for meaningful learning, personal growth, and community building.
