An open letter to Macalester College: Addressing racism

I hope to address Mac’s failure to retain students, faculty and staff of color on campus and question its structural polities, such as a majority white faculty personnel committee. I hope to put these failures in light and context of the national, historical and institutional oppression of people of color in academia. I will also add in my personal experience with racism at Mac, as well as talk about the security I found with advisors, faculty and staff of color which ultimately led to my retention.
