As our nation continues to grapple with the enduring legacies of its racist roots, now is the time to turn the lens inward and reflect on how our academic discplines and higher education itself have sometimes articulated or augmented racist policies and prejudiced ideas.

Panelists include:

  • Leah Elliott, Assistant Professor of Biology
  • Michael Groth, Professor of History
  • Laura McClusky, Professor of Sociology and Anthropology
  • Ernie Olson, Professor of Anthropology and Religion
  • Moderator: Phillip Guingona, Assistant Professor of History

Come share your thoughts as we work through these important questions. For the meeting link, please check your "Wells Wednesday" email.
