Dr. Denise Taliaferro Baszile

Here is a video of my dissertation advisor Dr. Denise Taliaferro Baszile preachin’, protestin’, and performin’ about the importance of diversity in Miami University’s School of Education. As many of us know, it is a struggle to retain black and brown students in college, but even more we find it hard to retain our talented brown and black students in Schools of Education across the country.

Quite possibly if we can view diversity as a project, as Dr. Baszile notes in the video, we may be able to get passed thinking just about quotas, affirmative action, looking diverse, and on to being diverse, thinking diverse, and marshaling diversity.
