Upcoming Race and Equity in Education for Undergrads


Amplifying Student Voices: Conversations on Race, Equity, and Inclusion in Education is a Seed Grant sponsored event on May 5, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM  that builds on the work that began at the Robinson Center’s Equity Summit in February 2017.
