Dean’s Forum: Racial Struggles on the Christian Campus
February 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm EST
Join us on Tuesday, February 28 for this spring’s first Dean’s Forum!
In this forum, Dr. George Yancey will touch upon some of his previous research that explored the racial challenges faced by students and administrators on Christian college campuses. He will look at how efforts to promote better race relations have failed, but he will also touch on some reforms that show promise. Yancey will build on those promising efforts to argue that the promotion of collaborative conversations can lead to better race relations at a Christian institution of higher education.
This event will livestream on Facebook and at gcts.edu/live with limited seating available in-person on the Hamilton campus. Lunch will be provided to those who will be attending in person. Registration opens January 23 and closes on February 20 for in-person attendance.
