The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that "White supremacist groups are targeting college campuses like never before," while the appearance of nooses, swastikas, and racial epithets are increasing across the United States.

This timely volume presents a wide-range of perspectives to offer readers practical steps and policy options for creating campus structures that are fair and inclusive to students of all races and social statuses.

It features chapters from a university president, department chair, a campus chaplain, cultural center directors, faculty, and students-including voices from the University of Missouri and Howard University during their recent series of protests.

Campus Uprisings demonstrates the power and value of principled non-violent activism to provoke change and provides thoughtful strategies to help universities manage conflict and racial tension. Book Features:Recommendations drawn from both scholarly analyses focused on practice and reflections from actual practitioners. "Voices from the Field" presents real-time perspectives of activists who are currently working toward societal change.

An intergenerational relevance with chapters on the Civil Rights era protests and current movements, such as Me Too and Black Lives Matter.
