Lived experience inspires dean of Arts to host the National Forum on Anti-Asian Racism: Building Solidarities (November 9-10, 2021)
Higher education is rife with contradictions: universities are at the same time sites of oppression and sites of resistance. As members of university communities, we therefore need to look inward in our efforts to achieve equity and social justice in society as a whole.
I encourage everyone – students, faculty, staff and community members – to join us at the forum, engage in these rich conversations and be part of the solutions.
