CMC Presidential Initiative on Anti-Racism and the Black Experience in America

A new Presidential Initiative on Anti-Racism and the Black Experience in America launches in the 2020-2021 academic year, developing a long-term, structural, integrated educational response to racism, inequality, and inequity.

We can’t return casually to the old educational playbook of more endless studies, ineffective programs, and unmeasurable goals,” said President Hiram Chodosh. “Most of all, we must develop a fresh vision, strategy, action plan, and accountable measures for how best to reinforce our values in action: through our behavior, our relationships, our community, our country."
