By 2045, the United States will become a majority-minority society, with less than 50% of the population being non-Hispanic Whites (Frey, 2018). The current cohort of college students are also more diverse than their previous cohorts in various ways (Schaeffer, 2019). As instructors of Psychology and other related fields, we can help students understand and appreciate diversity, cultivate a critical mind to analyze the role of sociocultural factors, and develop the knowledge and skills that would allow them to act ethically and responsibly in a diverse world (see American Psychological Association, 2013). In this volume, chapters are organized based on the following diversity areas: ability, age, culture, ethnicity/race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
