"What's Going On?": Institutional Accountability for Racial Equity in Student Success
This event is in the past.
There have been some positive trends in developing a more sophisticated understanding of how white folx can be individually accountable to BIPOC, for example moving past a notion of allyship to one of being an accomplice. And the call for reparations, both in the US and internationally continues to have traction. But what does it mean for an institution to be accountable for the harms of structural racism? Using the campus-wide effort for student success as an example, we will examine this question together.
