(book signing following)
This talk explores the ways college administrators, faculty, and staff members make sense of equity and accountability when they are participating in constructive attempts to address higher education's legacy of racism and contemporary role in sustaining discriminatory practices. It is about the steps practitioners can take to remediate the educational practices that are resulting in inequitable educational experiences and outcomes among racial and ethnic groups in the United States.
Dr. Alicia Dowd is a Professor of Education at Penn State University's Center for the Study of Higher Education. Strategies for promoting racial equality on university campuses will come to life in her presentation. Stories of university faculty, staff, and administrators who developed the identity of "equity-minded" change agents illustrate the benefits of moving from diversity to equity as a standard of practice to address intractable problems of institutionalized racism.
