A national panel discussion, Equity Matters III — Student Voices, brings together student leaders to hear their perspectives on how campuses may become more equitable, with a focus on challenges facing underrepresented students.

The discussion addresses a fundamental question: If college is meant as an equal platform for all to move forward, how do we recognize and surmount the unequal access faced by so many students on campus? And what is the university’s role in facilitating processes that yield effective environments of equity and justice? In answering the questions, the panel will expose new and at times unexpected visions of how equity and justice look on tomorrow’s university campus.
