Forum 35:

How Universities Sustain Racism in America

Held Thursday, February 22, 2018

Forum Summary

In this forum, Dr. Harper will discuss the “negligence” of universities with respect to giving students meaningful learning experiences about race and racism. He will then explain the long-term consequences of sending college-educated Americans into the workforce without a proper course of study on racial realities, structural racism, and ways in which their actions maintain and at times exacerbate racial inequities. Dr. Harper will use data from his decade-long campus racial climate studies, which include face-to-face interviews with more than 10,000 students at dozens of colleges and universities across the United States.
