Student Affairs Live - #ThisIsUs: Confronting the Continuing Realities of White Supremacy in Higher Education

September 6, 2017

As the fall term commences on colleges and universities across the U.S., we have heard from many practitioners and scholars--given the recent tragic events that unfolded in Charlottesville--of an urgent need to continue the conversation about racism and white supremacy in our institutions of higher education and our roles as student affairs educators. Confronting the continuing realities of white supremacy facing institutions of higher education for many student affairs educators requires an approach to our work that acknowledges our own complicity as well as attends with care and concern for our students, and also for our colleagues, and for ourselves.
