Friday Forum: The Long Game: Deepening the Work
March 26, 2021, 1-3 p.m.
Register to attend here.

In the sixth installment of the Friday Forums on Racism in Higher Education, we will close out the academic year with tangible and strategic next steps on how we ground anti-racism work across our institution and higher education systems across the country. In “The Long Game: Deepening the Work,” moderated by Daniel A. Reed, senior vice president for Academic Affairs at the University of Utah, we invite you to reflect on what you have learned throughout the past year and how you have changed your practices, and to interrogate your own relationship and approach to anti-racism work.

Our panelists will share how they have disrupted racism and systemic inequity, what they have built in its place and what we must do together to inspire and sustain the necessary and lasting changes in higher education.

Through the Friday Forum series on Racism in Higher Education, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) is taking a stand against racism and bringing the U to the forefront of the conversation. Each month during this academic year, EDI has led these national conversations with the goal of helping attendees start on a journey to eradicate racism and share best practices for sustained growth and action.

Panelists include: 

  • Leroy M. Morishita, president emeritus, California State University, East Bay
  • Mildred García, president, American Association of State Colleges and Universities
  • Andy Rathmann-Noonan, executive director, National Science and Technology Medals Foundation

Breakout Sessions

After the general session (1 – 2 p.m.), attendees will have the opportunity to join a breakout session (2 – 3 p.m.) to discuss how to move forward.
