Dr. Sharon Elise has been working on a study with fellow Black faculty on the CSUSM Black experience, which will document and amplify Black student and employee voices and experiences from the classroom and in the workplace. The OIE is identifying a date and time for a public presentation of Dr. Elise’s findings and will publish the document on the OIE website when it is complete.
As part of Office of Inclusive Excellence’s inaugural Distinguished Faculty Lecture series, Drs. Sharon Elise, Lori Walkington and Mohamed Abumaye, presented “The New Jim Crow in Academia” on October 27, featuring the results of a research study on the Black Experience at CSUSM.
The second lecture in the series will feature Dr. Joely Proudfit presenting her findings this spring on the impact of COVID on our American Indian and Alaskan Native students. A date and time will be shared with the campus as soon as it is confirmed.
