PWI (Predominantly White Institutions) vs. HWCU (Historically White Colleges and Universities): What is the Difference and Why it is Important 

2:00 Session

Presenter: Dr. Victoria Gonzalez

Typically, when we refer to institutions with a majority white population, we are inclined to use the acronym PWI. However, in this talk I will argue that we need to change our terminology and shift our thinking to the structural implications of being a part of an HWCU: Historical White College and University. This change suggests the need for a paradigm shift in how we approach issues of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.
