The Role of the Land-Grant University in Addressing Racial Tensions virtual panel

With protests against police brutality and misconduct sweeping our country following high-profile cases of racial profiling and police-involved deaths, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion hosted a virtual discussion exploring how The Ohio State University can respond to this crisis.

Hosted by Dr. Andreá Williams, the interim director of The Women's Place, this panel discussion with university thought leaders focused on discussing current racial disparities and prospects for social change.

Topics explored during the discussion included how what we teach, learn and do at Ohio State can make a difference in challenging racism and lead to meaningful change. Panelists also addressed what kinds of initiatives already exist here at Ohio State and in partnership with governmental agencies that can help eradicate racial disparities and discrimination.
