People outside and within colleges and universities often view these institutions as fair and reasonable, far removed from the inequalities that afflict society in general. Despite greater numbers of women, working class people, and people of color-as well as increased visibility for LGBTQ students and staff-over the past fifty years, universities remain "e;ivory towers"e; that perpetuate institutionalized forms of sexism, classism, racism, and homophobia. Transforming the Ivory Tower builds on the rich legacy of historical struggles to open universities to dissenting voices and oppressed groups. Each chapter is guided by a commitment to praxis-the idea that theoretical understandings of inequality must be applied to concrete strategies for change. Book jacket.
