Tackling Campus Racial Climate and Institutional Racism – Dr. Dominique Thomas

RadioActive

RadioActive is an hour long talk show hosted by Natalie Kivell, a Ph.D. candidate in Community Well-Being at the University of Miami. Each week Natalie interviews academics and/or activists from around the world who dive into critical discussions from a Community Psychology lens aimed specifically at addressing structural inequality and the root causes of our complex social problems. The show aims to provoke listeners to think differently about social change and social justice to help shift how we think, act and react to social change efforts in our research and practice.

RadioActive airs every Sunday at 6pm on wvum.org out of the University of Miami student radio station.

For this episode of RadioActive Natalie took a stop over in Atlanta, Georgia to interview Dr. Dominique Thomas about his recent research on campus racial climate for African American Students. His research looks to better understand the phenomena of racial climate in order to better tackle issues of institutional racism in higher education. As always, he is a fountain of knowledge and backs it up with his interesting and innovative research.
