Keynote address: "Are We Listening? Understanding Campus Climate by Centering Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation" by Dr. Tia Brown McNair, Doty Recital Hall, 11:30-12:30

Description: Creating campus climates and educational practices that evolve with today's increasingly diverse cohort of students requires an institution-wide commitment to addressing diversity, equity, and student success while embracing truth-telling and healing.  This presentation will focus on strategies for becoming an anti-racist institution through the work of the national Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) Campus Centers and AAC&U’s TRHT-focused Campus Climate Toolkit.

Dr. Tia Brown McNair is the Vice President in the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Student Success and Executive Director for the Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (TRHT) Campus Centers at the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) in Washington, DC. She oversees both funded projects and AAC&U’s continuing programs on equity, inclusive excellence, high-impact practices, and student success. McNair directs AAC&U’s Summer Institutes on High-Impact Practices and Student Success, and TRHT Campus Centers and serves as the project director for several AAC&U initiatives, including the development of a TRHT-focused campus climate toolkit. She is the lead author of From Equity Talk to Equity Walk: Expanding Practitioner Knowledge for Racial Justice in Higher Education (January 2020) and Becoming a Student-Ready College: A New Culture of Leadership for Student Success (July 2016 and August 2022 Second edition).
