Registration for Speaker Series Event Oct. 23rd: Whitewashing: Racial Disenfranchisement in Higher Education (Panel)

RACE: Are We So Different?

Free Admission

“Whitewashing”: Racial Disenfranchisement in higher education-Is there systemic racism on UM-Flint’s Campus? (Panel)

The panel discussion will explore the ways in which race, and particularly whiteness, shape higher education in the U.S.  The discussion will include critical examinations of how the U.S. higher education infrastructure systemically advantages, and indeed was designed for, white students, faculty and staff, and how contemporary educational institutions are, or are not working to challenge this legacy.  More specifically to UM-Flint, this panel will challenge contradictions between perceptions and realities of the campus climate, and explore unintended impediments that put at variance our mission statements and the pragmatic instruments for their wholesome delivery.
