» Engaging the World: Leading the Conversation on Ethnic Studies, Fall 2022

Wilkinson College is committed to leading the conversation in our community on issues of humanity, unity and justice. As such, the college has undertaken, semester-long examinations of key societal issues. These interdisciplinary, campus-wide conversations promote thoughtful dialogue; mindful reflection; social tolerance; awareness and respect; peace and kindness.

What is Ethnic Studies?

  • Ethnic Studies examines race, ethnicity, and indigeneity with a focus on the diverse histories, cultures, perspectives, and community work of people of color within and beyond the United States.

  • Ethnic studies foreground the voices and experiences of communities of color to analyze the experiences of racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. and the strategies used in historical movements for social transformation, resistance, and liberation

  • Ethnic Studies draws on the arts, humanities, and social sciences to tell a more inclusive American story.
