Perspectives From and the Roles of Dominant and Non-Dominant Racial Groups in Higher Education: What the Latest Research Suggests

Date: Thursday, August 1

Time: 3:00 PM (EDT)

Presenter: Dr. Karen White-Goyzueta, C4REL Consulting

Ramona Curtis, Director of Workforce Development, Tulsa Community College

Description:  White male social justice ally administrators at predominantly White institutions can act as catalysts in the Academy to create a more equitable campus. To do so, they must possess the ability to show empathy and understand the perspectives, needs, and concerns of key stakeholders. Rather than this empathy being applied to impose one’s own beliefs or views, the goal is to foster a more profound connection that contributes to the development of these stakeholders in a manner that enhances their capacity for strategic thinking.


In the second presentation, join Dr. White-Goyzueta as she discusses the results of her research on “Exploring Religiosity and the Reflective Perspectives of Microaggressions Endured by Students and Educators from Non-Dominant Racial Groups in Higher Education,” published last year in the International Journal of Research and Innovation in Social Science. She will address the role religion plays in student support and the enrollment crisis endured by college administrators when equity is not clearly defined, nor practiced, to support educators from non-dominant racial groups.
