SORT BY Relevancy
This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will look at the racism at colleges and universities across America. While paying attention to the news of what's going on at American colleges and universities, it kinda takes you back to the late 50's and early 60's. Did someone stumble on a racism time machine, or has this always been there, even with an African American holding the highest political office in the land? Minority students are standing up against this rapid racism. Thanks to the unity of students at the University of Missouri, their president, Tim Wolfe, has resigned due to his inadequate response to racial harassment. Let's talk about it here on The Fruit

While it may appear that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) do not have issues of domestic violence on their campuses they in fact do. There are many barriers that women of color may experience in seeking assistance. In 2011 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights published The Dear College letter. This set the guidelines for addressing the sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice Office of Violence Against has grants available to help assist colleges and universities to meet the mandates of the Dear Colleague letter. Tonight we will discuss how HBCU’s are addressing the issue of domestic violence and the resources for the survivor.

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among college students in U.S., with approximately 1,100 students dying by suicide each year. In addition, approximately 1% of undergraduates attempt suicide and 6-9% seriously consider suicide each year. It is recognized that youth suicide is influenced by many factors; research has indicated that one such factor is suicide contagion, a phenomenon to which teenagers and young adults are particularly vulnerable. Suicide contagion, sometimes referred to as suicide modeling, is the process wherein the direct or indirect knowledge of one suicide facilitates the occurrence of a subsequent suicide. There is ample evidence to support concerns about suicide contagion/modeling; several sources of this evidence will be presented. Given the prevalence of suicide on college campuses, and the associated risk of contagion and clustering, it is imperative that colleges develop effective and comprehensive postvention strategies. This blogtalk will present specific postvention strategies that colleges and universities can use to limit the risk of further suicides through contagion.
Bookstores are quickly becoming a thing of the past . . . just a distant memory . . . although this saddens me, it also causes me to reflect on how our access to information is rapidly changing. No longer must we hunt and peck with card catalogs, microfiche or encyclopedias, the world of information is at our fingertips. This not a novel revelation; however, it is reasonable to assume that our educational institutions may be next on the chopping block.
If colleges/universities exist to educate the next generation, what would become of them if the opportunities for education were made available online . . . for free? Would class warfare subside if any with access to the internet could access any school's curriculum? The future is now, my friends. . . did you know that MIT offers virtually the entire catalog of courses online . . .for free. Check it out: http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm or https://www.edx.org/ with courses from Harvard, Berkeley, MIT, and University of Texas.
So . . . with access to knowledge available to ALL . . .with no boundaries based on race, color, or creed . . . is the game changed? Not yet, because these courses come with no "piece of paper" to validate the student's participation and completion. They are presently for personal edification only . . . how long can that last? If the information (including lectures, required reading, and coursework) is available and the goal of education is . . . education . . . is the formal education system, as we know it, on its death bed?
Matt discusses this and more . . .

What REALLY goes on behind the scenes in a university? What goes on that the establishment doesn't want you to know?
