Dismantling Hate: An Educational Series Toward Understanding and Action

This series, for the academic year 2021-22, is a campus-wide initiative that provides programming for CC students, faculty, staff, and alumni and community members from the Colorado Springs area. The purpose and goal of this educational series is to support our communities in better understanding hate — the root and outcomes — and to motivate people to take action to dismantle hate. Each educational program in the series will feature a conversation with an activist, broadly defined, who will share their work and experiences dismantling hate against marginalized communities.

Antiracism 101 with Dr. Shaun Harper

September 9, 2021 
7-8:30 p.m.
Location and Zoom information TBA

This is a hybrid in-person/online event; Zoom option is open to the public

Colorado College has made a bold commitment to antiracism, but does everyone know what exactly that means? How is it different from diversity, equity, and inclusion? To answer this question we have invited Dr. Shaun Harper, founder of the newly formed Liberal Arts Colleges Racial Equity Leadership Alliance, or LACRELA, of which CC is a member. Harper is also the founder and executive director of the Race and Equity Center at University of Southern California, where he is provost professor of education and business and holds the Clifford and Betty Allen Chair in Urban Leadership. 

Shaun Harper studies racial, gender, and LGBT issues in corporations, law firms, Hollywood production companies, K-12 schools, and universities. He also is an expert on college sports. Harper has consulted with more than 200 businesses and institutions on strategies related to equity, diversity, and inclusion. He has published 12 books and over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles and other academic publications and procured $13 million in research grants. His research has been cited in over 10,000 published studies. The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Fortune, Washington Post, Black Enterprise, and several thousand other news outlets have quoted Harper and featured his research. He has been interviewed on CNN, ESPN, and NPR. Prior to becoming a faculty member at USC, he was assistant director of MBA admissions for the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. Harper spent a decade at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a tenured full professor.
