Description/Abstract

Although The New York Times has already observed that President Barack Obama is an "omnipresent icebreaker" in the national conversation about race, now is a good time to recall the President's warning that we will not "get beyond our racial divisions in a single election cycle, or with a single candidacy" and that race is something in American history and life "that we've never really worked through." Diversity—and not only in race (though importantly race)—is an agenda that still needs champions, on campus as well as in Washington, D.C.

Additional Information

Remarks delivered February 10, 2009 at the annual meeting of the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education for the presidents panel discussion titled, “The President as Champion of the Diversity Agenda: Leading by Example.
