Faculty Spotlight: 

Professor Logan believes learning about labor issues provides real-world value to our students. “The overwhelming majority of our students work, many working full-time,” he says. “It’s important they understand how the world of work is changing – which occupations are growing and which ones are disappearing – and important to know what rights and protections they and their colleagues have at work.” Whether students are newly entering the business world or hold a management position, Logan suggests reading books like Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Anti-Racist and Ruchika Tulshyan’s The Diversity Advantage, which can provide insight about advocating for equity and a framework for creating space to discuss workplace diversity.
