How much do you know about the University of Dayton's racial history, and why does it matter? This session will explore a brief racial history of the University and examine how whiteness influences policies (related to enrollment, hiring, promotion, and retention), our visual images, and the climate for students, staff, faculty, and visitors. This session will provide necessary skills in how to engage in conversations about race, particularly as it relates to dominate whiteness.
