Scholarship to Practice 10/22/20

Bridget Burns, Executive Director of the University Innovation Alliance, and Derrick Tillman-Kelly, Director of UIA's Fellows Program and Network Engagement, speak with Dr. Richard Reddick, professor and associate dean at The University of Texas at Austin.

Topics include:

  • What cultural taxation looks like and why it's a problem
  • The difference between taxation and legitimate participation
  • Why administrators need to step up and address this situation
  • Allyship is everybody's work because all groups benefit
  • A list of resources for understanding cultural taxation
