I. If These Halls Could Talk, what would they say about the alarming rates of students of color leaving our colleges? What would our students say it is like to be a minority student at a predominantly white campus? Are faculties and staff prepared for this influx of students from different backgrounds? In the summer of 2010, Lee Mun Wah brought together eleven college students from around the country to discuss these questions. Join him for an exclusive preview of his electrifying new film and a diversity dialogue.

Of special interest to HR professionals, college and university recruitment and retention and student service professionals, and college and university staff and students providing campus diversity leadership.
