In this episode your host, David Pluviose checks-in on the latest ideas, coverage and hot topics from the Diverse newsroom. As Native American Heritage Month comes to a close we cannot lose focus on the experience and rights of the indigenous Native American nations. David also talks about a new certification program—DOIT—that was launched in our Nov. 12th print edition. It’s a new mechanism that will certify an institution’s progress on diversity and inclusion which is key in identifying the Universities and Colleges taking massive action during this time to create change. Most importantly, David discusses the changes in our administration that are underway and what we can expect for HigherED with a new secretary of education and the Biden Administration.
