Kentucky State University selected to participate in the 2020 Institute on Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Campus Centers initiative
Kentucky State University was recently selected to participate in the 2020 Institute on Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Campus Centers initiative. The initiative is offered by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U).
According to the AAC&U, the organization is partnering with higher education institutions to develop Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) Campus Centers to prepare the next generation of strategic leaders and thinkers to break down racial hierarchies and dismantle the belief in the hierarchy of human value.
According to Dr. Derek Greenfield, vice president for student engagement and campus life/chief diversity officer, the Kentucky State team — including Greenfield; Raul Pereles, assistant director of residence life; Katianna Yates, director of campus life; Dr. LeChrista Finn, associate professor); and Adrian Douglass, grant manager — will participate in an intensive summer institute to craft the agenda for moving the university forward in its efforts to promote diversity, inclusion, and equity.
“Considering the competitiveness of this prestigious program, we are truly excited and honored that Kentucky State University will have the opportunity to serve as a leader in efforts to build a more inclusive and equitable society,” Greenfield said.
