Why Students of Color Don’t “Claim” Williams

This panel aims to highlight microaggressions as one of the many obstacles to true inclusivity and equity that students of color face at a predominantly-white institution. Microaggressions are extremely common at Williams and are forms of subliminal racism that students of color experience both inside and outside the classroom. The panel will address common microaggressions across all facets of the institution that Williams students experience and why these microaggressions are harmful by juxtaposing them with their implications rooted in institutional and national history.

3:45 P.M. – 5:15 P.M., Goodrich Hall. Sponsored by the The Gaius C. Bolin Chapter of S.A.A.C. (Student Athletic Advisory Committee)
