“I recently had a conversation with folks in my cluster about racism. Someone said he was taught racism ended in the ’70s and that it was resolved. So we talked about how this doesn’t get resolved. You can’t legislate love. You can’t legislate compassion. We all need to challenge our ideas of history, to grapple with otherness, and to practice empathy and compassion. I think having these kinds of discussions — instead of just counting the number of people admitted and the number of professors of color — is what’s needed to move the needle.”
