“Panel Discussion: BIPOC Student Experiences in Health and Education at a Predominantly White Institution"

Monday, March 15th, 5:30-6:30 PM CST

A Predominantly White Institution is defined as an institution of higher learning in which 50% or higher of student enrollment is white. As of Fall 2020, the University of Iowa racial demographics share that 81.3% of their students and 86.6% of their faculty are white. Being a student of color attending a predominately white institution can present unique challenges compared to white peers. This panel discussion will center what this experience is like across disciplines from the perspective of 4 current students at the University of Iowa. Our featured panelists include:

  • Taya Westfield (she/her/hers)
  • Laxmi Annapureddy (she/her/hers)
  • Bianca Robles-Muñoz (she/her/hers)
  • Gordon Louie (he/him/his)
