Students of color and underrepresented students often undergo a process of academic acculturation to become successful in college. However, there needs to be a two-way process of academic acculturation, where professors learn to understand and support students from diverse backgrounds. A panel of faculty, staff, and students will lead a discussion of what faculty can do to make the learning environment more inclusive.
