A special 90-minute addition to the Friday Forums on Racism in Higher Education series will focus on the threat towards Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Black spaces at the University of Utah and universities across the country. Together with the Council of 1890 Universities, we will gather together presidents from HBCU institutions to discuss:
- How institutions are faring in the wake of the threats
- What supports institutions are providing students, faculty and staff
- What can be done on a national level to support and protect these spaces
The purpose of this forum is to amplify national awareness of this growing threat. It will show that while these scare tactics are designed to distract, threaten and intimidate, these presidents and University of Utah leadership have resolved to effectively create safe spaces where Black people can thrive.
