Book Discussion: “From Equity Talk to Equity Walk: Expanding Practitioner Knowledge for Racial Justice in Higher Education”

March 23

Book Discussion: “From Equity Talk to Equity Walk: Expanding Practitioner Knowledge for Racial Justice in Higher Education” by Tia Brown McNair, Estela Mara Bensimon, and Lindsey Malcom-Piqueux

Join participants from across Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Ohio as they discuss this recently released book from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and the Center for Urban Education at USC. The authors provide examples of ways institutions can design and implement effective campus change strategies to establish expansive and equity-minded campus cultures.

Starting Tuesday, March 23, 2021, discussions will take place virtually on the Third Tuesday of each month from March through July. Participants will discuss one chapter per month and be encouraged to work with others at their institution to develop ideas on how ideas from the text might influence and accelerate change.

Discussion will take place at 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (EST) and 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM (EST). Participants can choose to participate in one or the other discussion session but are asked to commit to that time session for the entire series.


This program is FREE and open to individuals from Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Ohio Campus Compact partner institutions, and their community partners.
