Our annual Race and Education Lecture Series considers the connections between race and educational processes and institutions from contemporary and historical perspectives.
The series engages and assists our Colgate community in understanding the importance of racial and ethnic diversity in educational curriculum, pedagogy, programs, and policies.
By bringing our community together to critically discuss the issues of race and racism and the impact these issues have upon the educational system and our broader society, the lecture series seeks to foster cross-racial interaction, acceptance, and understanding throughout the community.
