Offers insight into race-based disparities in higher education and practical tools for advancing racial equity on college and university campuses.

The current socio-political moment—rife with racial tensions and overt bigotry—has exacerbated longstanding racial inequities in higher education. While educational scholars have developed conceptual tools and offered data-informed recommendations for rooting out racism in campus policies and practices, this work is largely inaccessible to the public. At the same time, practitioners and policymakers are increasingly called on to implement quick solutions to what are, in fact, profound, structural problems. Racial Equity on College Campuses bridges this gap, marshaling the expertise of nineteen scholars and practitioners to translate research-based findings into actionable recommendations in three key areas: university leadership, teaching and learning, and student and campus life. The strategies gathered here will prove useful to institutional actors engaged in both real-time and long-term decision-making across contexts—from the classroom to the boardroom.

"This well-researched book makes an important and timely contribution to extant scholarship on race and equality in the postsecondary context. Its forward-thinking qualitative approach is designed to evoke original and authentic themes. This in turn positions the book to make 'real' contributions to both theory and practice. As a particular strength, the authors use the lenses of curriculum and instruction, campus life, and institutional leadership to reveal how race and equity intersect across these critical areas." — Fred A. Bonner II, coeditor of Square Pegs and Round Holes: Alternative Approaches to Diverse College Student Development Theory
