Description - Responding to the Realities of Race on Campus by Shaun R. Harper

This volume of New Directions for Student Services illuminates several realities regarding racism, cross-racial interaction, race-based educational inequities, and campus racial climates in higher education. Authors describe how student learning and development are stifled by the mistreatment of race as a taboo topic on most college and university campuses. They also discuss the disconnection between espoused and enacted institutional values concerning inclusiveness and racial equity, as well as the need for increased accountability and intentionality. In addition to igniting critical consciousness about one of the most vexing problems in American higher education, the chapters in this volume include several practical implications for reducing racial toxins in campus environments and engaging students in meaningful learning experiences about race inside and outside the classroom.
