2021 Graduate College Distinguished Lecture: Canceling Student Debt is Anti-Racist (and Why We Must Do It), October 21
Join the Graduate College and noted educator, journalist and scholar, Andre M. Perry, for this year’s 2021 Graduate College Distinguished Lecture. Perry’s research focuses on race and structural inequality, education and economic inclusion. He will discuss how centering student debt policy around students of color would help to combat historic systemic racism that has prevented Black people and people of color from gaining the wealth they were denied for centuries. As a result, it is more difficult for Black Americans to pay back their student loans, acquire homes and start businesses.
Following Perry’s lecture, he will sit down with special guest Battinto Batts Jr., dean of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, for a question and answer session to include questions from the audience. Questions for Perry can also be submitted in advance through your in-person or virtual registration.
