An Unlevel Playing Field – the Myth of Access and Equality in Higher Education – A Zoom dialogue


racial healing

In light of the recent Georgetown law professor’s comments about black students’ academic performance and the viral video of the Oxnard College professor that berated a deaf student for “not paying attention in class”, it’s time to talk about the myth of access and equality in higher education.  Please join us for a presentation by Center Member Sharon Hill.  A facilitated dialogue will follow the presentation.

Volunteer ASL Interpreting will be provided by interns enrolled in the University of Houston ASL Interpreting Program.
