Next Phase of a High-Impact Career
Jamal Watson, Diverse Issues in Higher Education
Last year, Shaun Harper took to social media to share a personal career announcement that had lots of people talking, both inside and outside of education. Harper told his thousands of followers that in May 2023, he would be stepping away from the USC Race and Equity Center.
From its inception, the center that Harper breathed life into back in 2011 has fundamentally revolutionized the way higher education leaders think about and approach diversity, equity, and inclusion work. In this interview, Harper reflects on his journey as a DEI trailblazer and his next steps.
