You are invited to an evening with Tim Wise. A presentation not to be missed, Wise is a best-selling author and lecturer on racism and privilege in today’s society.
Wise was recently named by Utne Reader as one of “25 Visionaries Who are Changing Your World.” He is the author of six books, including his newest “Dear White America: Letter to a New Minority.” He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television programs, is a regular contributor to discussions about race on CNN, and has been featured on ABC’s “20/20.”
Portland State University won the biggest merit award from the State Board of Higher Education for 2011-12 because it graduated more Oregon residents, and more rural and minority Oregonians, than any of the state's six other public universities.
For that, the board awarded PSU a bonus of nearly $1 million Friday.
WHAT Hosted by the Diversity Action Council and facilitated by Dr. Samuel D. Henry -- all PSU students, faculty, staff, and community leaders are invited to join PSU’s Diversity Action Council in this facilitated dialogue aimed at developing better (best) practices on race matters between the University and its communities of color.
