From community colleges, to the most elite institutions, to the largest public universities, higher education is leading the nation’s focus on diversity, equity and inclusion in its many configurations, with varying definitions and foci. Yet our nation’s racial divisions seem more ingrained than previously acknowledged and student groups on campuses across the country continue to demand change, even on campuses with highly diverse student populations. How do the national climate and the campus climate intersect? Come and participate in an engaging discussion and presentations looking briefly at the American sociohistorical climate, diversity demographics from universities across the nation, and promising practices in improving campus climate all presented and facilitated through engaging narrative. This will be presented by Dr. Caryl McFarlane.
