Colorado College has made a bold commitment to antiracism but does everyone know what exactly that means? How is it different from diversity, equity, and inclusion? To answer this question we invited Dr. Shaun Harper, founder of the newly formed Liberal Arts Colleges Racial Equity Leadership Alliance, or LACRELA, of which CC is a member. 

Shaun Harper studies racial, gender, and LGBT issues in corporations, law firms, Hollywood production companies, K-12 schools, and universities. He is also an expert on college sports. Dr. Harper has consulted with more than 200 businesses and institutions on strategies related to equity, diversity, and inclusion. He has published 12 books and over 100 peer-reviewed journal articles and other academic publications and procured $13 million in research grants. His research has been cited in over 10,000 published studies. The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Fortune, Washington Post, Black Enterprise, and several thousand other news outlets have quoted Professor Harper and featured his research. He has interviewed on CNN, ESPN, and NPR. Prior to becoming a faculty member, he was Assistant Director of MBA Admissions for the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. Dr. Harper spent a decade at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a tenured full professor.
