Truth, Racial Healing, & Transformation Campus Center (TRHT)

Marywood University was recently named by The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to establish a Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation campus center.

According to AAC&U, Marywood University is among thirteen institutions selected through a competitive process as sites for the second cohort of TRHT Campus Centers. Lynn Pasquerella, president of AAC&U said, “AAC&U is thrilled to partner with these outstanding institutions on our way to establish 150 centers across the country to ensure that higher education is playing a leadership role in promoting racial and social justice.”

In partnership with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation effort, AAC&U works with higher education institutions across the country to develop self-sustaining, community-integrated TRHT Campus Centers. Organized around the five pillars of the TRHT framework—narrative change, racial healing and relationship building, separation, law, and economy—the Centers seek to prepare the next generation of leaders to confront racism and to dismantle the belief in a hierarchy of human value.
