The ongoing national conversation about the deadly impact of racism following the senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others has created an urgency around the need for dramatic change at all levels of society.
As a result, many education leaders are facing growing pressure from students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni to recognize their complicity in systemic oppression and commit to groundbreaking, intersectional, and dynamic change.
As part of our commitment to racial and social justice, EAB is exploring how K-12 schools and postsecondary institutions must reimagine their systems, policies, and culture to address the impact of racism in our society. Our research uncovers the loci of transformative institution-wide change necessary to address our collective history of racial segregation and oppression to truly serve our students, staff, faculty, and communities.
Becoming an anti-racist institution is about transforming the institution through “active and conscious efforts to work against the multidimensional aspects of racism.” This requires interrogating and rebuilding the policies, procedures, beliefs, and systems that are built into the very fabric and nature of a college. Ultimately, institutions who commit to doing this work will be undertaking a comprehensive institution-wide effort.
In this webinar we will outline EAB’s industry-wide point of view on what the defining hallmarks and behaviors of an anti-racist institution are and interrogate the role of educational institutions in addressing structural racism and healing the legacies of racial trauma in our communities.
