Risk Management Toolkit for Confronting Historical Legacies of Racial Oppression in Higher Ed

This toolkit helps college and university leaders determine and communicate their preparedness for addressing historical legacies of racial harm on campus.

Key Insights

When addressing historical ties to racial discrimination and oppression, influential stakeholders often focus on the potential risks of doing so and resist change. As a result, many college and university leaders find their actions constrained to symbolic efforts that fail to address underlying context.

Resistance to confronting historical legacies of racial oppression generally stems from procedural, institutional, or interpersonal fears.

To better understand why risk aversion acts as a major barrier to confronting historical legacies of racial oppression, EAB investigated dozens of perceived risks that pose barriers to progress and developed this toolkit to help teams determine and communicate their preparedness for transformational change.
