Diversity Education at Land-Grant Universities from the Perspective of a Female Student of Color
Keywords:Barriers, Diversity, Education, Extension, Land-Grant Universities, People Of Color, Race, Requirements, Students
As a land-grant university student, in order to graduate I must fulfill the requirement of a two-part diversity course. In reflecting on my own experience and growth from taking these classes as a female student of color, I examined my involvement within the agrifood system. I assert the need for diversity education and training in land-grant universities. Finally, I state the necessity for increased practices and strategies for land grants and extension departments to recruit and retain more diverse students, staff, and faculty.
