Reimagining the University: A New Paradigm for Racial Justice
January 6, 2016
Ajay Nair writes: As higher education institutions respond to the recent demands of their students, it is striking that not a single institution of which I am aware is calling for a paradigm shift for racial justice -- a reimagining of the university. Historically, higher education in general has not been at the forefront of issues of racial justice. Instead, universities have tended to offer three dominant types of responses to student demands for racially just campuses: the implementation of bureaucratic multiculturalism, calls for evidence, and commitments to support academic freedom at any cost.
