As colleges and universities prepare to reopen their campuses this fall, higher education faces the urgent need to avoid returning to the old “normal” in which minoritized identities were marginalized based on structural inequities. In response to these inequities, higher education leaders have been critiquing existing policies and practices to determine how they impact students with diverse religious, secular, and spiritual identities. In this session, scholars and practitioners will offer insights into these ideas and discuss how to make newly reopened campuses more equitable and inclusive spaces.
