President Raymond Tymas-Jones invited Brown University Professor Dr.Tricia Rose to speak to our community virtually on Feb 10th, to present her lecture entitled ‘Systemic Racism and its Impact on Creating a Diverse and Inclusive Campus’.
Dr. Rose is a professor of Africana Studies and the director of the Center for Study of Race and Ethnicity in America.
The talk explored what systemic racism is, and how it works in American society to ‘normalize and render invisible the highly consequential workings of anti-black racism today’.
Dr. Rose focused on how systemic racism distorts the processes, experiences and core features of the academic community including: the student and faculty academic pipeline, hiring, curriculum, climate for faculty, staff and students, the ways of thinking, evaluating and mentoring that deeply shape our campuses.
