Abstract

The murder of George Floyd by police and the tragic litany of police murders of African-Americans is raising outcries for justice long overdue and has set off fires born of rage, including in Las Vegas. These calls for justice extend to scrutiny of higher education for institutional racism that affects climate and opportunities for students of color and from racial and ethnic minorities along with urgent priorities to diversify faculties.
