Why I don't want to live in a 'color blind' society | Mike Tapscott

What would our world be like without race? According to diversity and inclusion professional Mike Tapscott, it would be a world lacking in substance and pride. With anecdotal and professional evidence, Tapscott explores how we think about race right now and how we can think about it better. 

Mike Tapscott directs the Multicultural Student Services Center at the George Washington University and is celebrating his 37th year in university administration work this year.

He and his team lead efforts on campus to improve diversity, inclusion, advocacy, and campus climate. His work on campus includes influencing policy and programs that support the success of underrepresented students, and combining his experience in admissions and minority student affairs. He earned his B. A. in History from Tufts University with a minor in sociology, and attended graduate school at Tufts and American, studying higher education administration and communications.
