Theme H. Race, Diversity, And Justice

Theme coordinator: Dr. Michael Willard

"Race, Diversity and Justice" is a theme that integrates the investigation of contemporary issues of racism and social injustice with the goal of understanding what attitudes and behaviors prevent equal treatment for all peoples. This theme presents the conceptual and historical background necessary for responsible and moral judgment, subsequent action, and the embracement of cultural diversity in a world that is composed of many cultures and societies.
