Many students are first exposed to a cross-section of cultures on college campuses. But there's a looming question of whether or not institutions of higher learning are doing enough to prepare students for the diverse world around them.

Dr. J. Bernard Machen, President of the University of Florida, and Dr. Melvin Johnson, President of Tennessee State University, a Historically Black College (HBCU), talk about what they're doing to increase cultural awareness on their college campuses.
