Transforming Academia for Equity

Research seminar

Coming together to advance equity and justice in College of Health as part of our land-grant mission

In this May 27, 2022 presentation Drs. Garcia and MacTavish describe the plan for the COH initiative, A Land Grant University for Equity and Justice, that will build on previous work to advance faculty and student success through the lens of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI).

They explore domains from the literature that provide a foundation for the work, such as racism and the academic pipeline, racial resistance to authority and expertise, racial hostility in the classroom, racial scrutinizing of research agendas, racial taxation of excessive service, and racial marginalization and isolation.
