Title: Labeling and Racial Identity: Effects of Language on the University of Illinois Campus
Author(s): 09spEOL574LP
Subject(s): Racial identity Labeling African American Black Language 2009 Spring EOL574
Issue Date: 2009
Series/Report: EOL 574 Diversity in Higher EducationProf. Lorenzo BaberThis course was designed to provide students with critical understanding of issues of diversity in higher education. There are multiple dimensions to diversity, far too complicated to cover in one course. Therefore, the goal of this seminar was to provide a general introduction to theory, research, and practices related to diversity issues. While this course was designed to focus on race/ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality, there was intentional flexibility for this course to consider other forms of diversity that are valuable to participants. By the end of the course, students were expected to recognize and discuss major issues involving diversity in higher education from both micro (students, faculty, administrators) and macro levels (institutional and federal policies); consider, from both historical and contemporary perspectives, the politics of diversity in campus climates, including the role of privilege and the impact of discrimination; identify critical issues and develop an analysis grounded in research literature; develop/sharpen understanding of the writing process and research skills.
