5. Enroll students of color
Creating an environment where students of color can be heard to educate and inform their peers will enhance higher ed’s goal to help students take a more active role in the world that promotes human dignity and the common good.
For example, Sacred Heart is giving black students a voice in an upcoming Heart Challenges Hate colloquia where they will share their experience of national events, including the celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.
“Our ultimate purpose is to educate our students to be knowledgeable and informed citizens about issues and topics related to racial injustice and white privilege,” says Loris. “We are always looking to recruit black students to increase our number of students of color on campus.”
