EFOP 3153 - RESEARCH PERSPECTIVES ON DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Credits: 3.0

This course addresses the key dimensions in the study of diversity, equity, and inclusion within the U.S. higher education system. In this doctoral level course, we focus on both theoretical and empirical bodies of literature that have been used to study racialized, gendered, and minoritized groups within higher education. Using a critical and socio-historical lens, we examine individual, structural, and societal dimensions of power and oppression to understand their pervasive implications for diverse groups within educational systems. Students gain a solid foundation for understanding both the historical progression of research on minoritized groups and contemporary approaches to the study of diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education.
