Join Dr. Joy Blanchard, Associate Professor of Higher Education at Louisiana State University, Dr. Hollie Chessman, Director of Research at the American Council on Education, and CMind Executive Director Dr. David Robinson-Morris in a data-driven conversation where the issues are identified, named, and confronted as a beginning of the healing process. Borrowing from Bryan Stevenson, there is no healing without the truth. Dr. Chessman will highlight a series of research reports from the American Council on Education that shed light on the myriad of issues within higher education from the concerns of sitting college and university presidents to the issues of racial injustice and inequity rampant on American college campuses.
