Neo-Segregation Toolkit and Conference Call

National Association of Scholars

In April, NAS released the first in a new series of reports called "Separate but Equal, Again: Neo-Segregation in American Higher Education." Our new report, Neo-Segregation at Yale, traces Yale’s history of separating minority students—but presenting it as voluntary on the part of students. We also released a database of neo-segregation at 173 colleges and universities.

Join us today at 2:00 PM Eastern for a conference call to discuss the rise of neo-segregation—and what can be done to encourage integration. NAS’s lead researcher, Dion J. Pierre, will present NAS’s findings and some proposals for reform.

We’ll also discuss our new toolkit, released below, with some recommended steps that NAS members can take to push back against the rise of neo-segregation.

1. Join our conference call TODAY, Friday May 24, from 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern.

Dion J. Pierre will discuss what “neo-segregation” means, where it originated, and how we can advocate for the ideal of a color-blind college campus.

When: Friday, May 24, 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern
Where: Call in to 855-369-0450 and use the conference code 52-275-553 #

2. Write a letter to your member of Congress.

Our database of 173 colleges and universities reveals hundreds of instances of racial segregation on college campuses—perhaps in violation of federal law. Look up your local university in our database and express your concern about it.

The Office for Civil Rights in the Department of Education is charged with enforcing Title VI of the Higher Education Act, which bars racial discrimination by colleges and universities.

4. Write an op-ed or letter to the editor.

Check our database to see if your local college has neo-segregated programs, and then write an op-ed or letter to the editor of your local paper.
