Our universities often invest in promoting aspects of diversity and inclusion including monitoring progress in different areas, but what if some of our approaches can hide or even reproduce racial inequality on campus? W. Carson Byrd, Faculty Director of Research Initiatives in the National Center for Institutional Diversity at the University of Michigan, will discuss a snippet of his forthcoming book examining how the organizational processes and policies among universities can shape racial inequality on our campuses particularly when campus units rely on numbers-driven approaches to both measure and monitor progress of diversity and inclusion. + Zoom Event Campus Events
