Presenters: Laurie Usher, Dr. Tracey Sheets

Participants will be able to: Recognize why and how universities should develop an antiracist identity. Understand how admissions can create policies and programs that support diversity. Utilize counter-storytelling as means for marginalized groups to be heard and challenge stories told by the dominant group.
