June 5-7, 2019
Rose Hill Campus
Bronx, New York
“MAKES ME WANNA HOLLER:
Rethinking Access and Belonging in the
Shadow of Increasing Economic Inequality and Political Polarization”
At this meeting we will be examining the stressors — financial, social, psychological — that impact students of color and other underrepresented students at our institutions and discuss strategies that help students, faculty, and staff grapple with the array of challenges and exchange ideas about how to help our schools create and sustain more fully supportive and inclusive campus environments. And in this increasingly contentious political moment, we will also consider how we can prepare to confront the heightened tensions and divisiveness on our campuses that the 2020 election cycle will inevitably bring.
Featured speakers include
Anthony Abraham Jack (B.A. Amherst, Ph.D., Harvard), Assistant Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and author of The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students (2019). Dr. Jack will give the luncheon keynote address, Thursday, June 6th.
Christina Greer (B.A., Tufts, Ph.D., Columbia), Associate Professor of Political Science and American Studies at Fordham University, who will facilitate a session at 3 PM, Thursday, June 6th.
