Symposium on Racial Identity in Higher Education
November 15, 2013
10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Place: Brattle Room (Area 3), Gutman Conference Center

The symposium will bring together 16 Native American Harvard students, 16 students from other minority Harvard students, and 16 Australian Indigenous students and graduates. The date of the Symposium coincides with the 2013 Aurora Indigenous Scholars International Study Tour (the Study Tour). The Study Tour provides the opportunity for high-achieving Indigenous Australians interested in postgraduate study to visit universities such as Columbia, Harvard, NYU and Standford in the US, and Oxford and Cambridge in the UK.

This symposium is an effort to recognize the role of racial identity in higher education. In Australia, Indigenous educators and academics stress the need to claim a space for Indigenous identity, and to create legitimacy for traditional methodologies, in the classroom, lecture halls, and academic journals. We want to learn about how these issues are playing out in the United States. We hope to discuss current issues, and brainstorm methods to overcome them.
