I want to study the role of institutional discourse and structure on students’ racial consciousness. More specifically, through an examination of how the rhetoric, structural processes, and any initiatives surrounding diversity-work within higher education informs and influences students perceptions of themselves or others as racialized beings. Additionally, I am interested in the role between structure and agency; looking at how institutions of higher education frame equity and diversity and its influences on student-activism, both within and outside the academy.
