Challenging racism in higher education : promoting justice

"Challenging Racism in Higher Education provides conceptual frames for understanding the historic and current state of intergroup relations and institutionalized racial discrimination in our colleges and universities. Subtle and overt forms of privilege and discrimination on the basis of race, gender, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, religion, and physical ability are present on almost all campuses, and they seriously damage the potential for all students to learn and for all faculty and administrators to teach and lead. This book concertizes these issues by presenting the voices and experiences of college students, faculty, and administrators and linking this material to research literature via interpretive analyses of people's experiences
