As the coronavirus spurs an economic downturn, colleges and universities have started to tighten their budgets. But when institutions cut spending, will their diversity and inclusion work suffer?
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education explored this question and others with university leaders and diversity professionals in a two-part webinar moderated by editor-at-large Dr. Jamal Watson last Thursday. It was the final segment in a series of online discussions hosted by Diverse and CoopLew, a professional development organization for chief diversity officers in higher education.
