Universities need to listen to BIPOC students to address racism: Editorial

Queen’s University Doctor of Science Candidate Deborah Francis has penned an article about her research on the importance of BIPOC student participation in shaping campus justice, equity, and diversity. Francis and her team use the shared decision-making approach from the health care sector to listen to BIPOC students’ experiences of how racial inequities manifest on campus. The team created a steering community of BIPOC students and leaders, which then used a critical race theory approach to identify how dominant groups perpetuate racism in university policy and practices by disregarding the experiences of BIPOC students.
