There is a conversation Black faculty often have with Black students that we rarely mention in public, let alone in mixed company. The tone of this exchange differs to some extent if the student are U.S. born or from the diaspora.

College is all about finding your place in the world -- or so I've been told -- and I still don't at all know my place in the world.

Time to Talk Seriously About Sexual Violence on Campus

Deborah Rosenbloom | Posted 06.05.2013 | College
Deborah Rosenbloom

A college campus is an insular and hyper-social space with masses of 18-year-olds living away from home and parental controls, in groups of peers together 24/7, often in tight quarters, and with the liberty of a lack of boundaries never before experienced.
