Delta’s March Roundtable will focus on racial disparities in Madison, the academic Achievement Gap for underrepresented minority students in both K-12 and at the University, and the responsibilities we all have to amend this situation. This is an amazing opportunity to reflect on the social and moral responsibilities future and current faculty and academic staff have in their positions as educators, toward reducing racial disparities and the achievement gap, both on campus and in Wisconsin. The Rev. Dr. Gee will share his thoughts on the state of racial issues in Madison and their impact on education, what community-based solutions exist or can be created to address racial disparities, and how we can create change to address the academic achievement gap.
