Given the deep divisions following the results of the presidential election along racial, religious, gender and economic lines, our campuses must play an outsized role in simply keeping us as a nation from becoming unglued as we continue to grow in diversity. Now, more than ever, our campuses must be vigilant in offering diverse and inclusive curricula to challenge our students to wrestle with vacuous stereotypes they may hold of those who are different than they are. We must promote climates on our campuses that are void of hate, racism, sexism and xenophobia. An important element of this process is ensuring civility and respect in the discussion of ideas that might make individuals reconsider their own biases and predilections. Let me be clear: Not all ideas have equal merit, but we need to ensure that we use rational and respectful methods to examine them. The ability and willingness to engage in such a learning process are important prerequisites for harmonious living in our diverse nation.
