Author O. Gilbert Brown will present a talk and book signing from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 2 at Oread Books in the Kansas Union.
Brown is the co-editor of the recent book "Unleashing Suppressed Voices on College Campuses: Diversity Issues in Higher Education" (Peter Lang Publishing). The event is free, and the public is invited.
"Unleashing Suppressed Voices on College Campuses," co-edited by Kandace Hinton and Mary Howard-Hamilton, provides a comprehensive and inclusive lens of diversity for nearly every aspect of higher education: academic affairs administration, faculty tenure and promotion, student athletes in revenue-producing sports, enrollment management and business. It addresses relevant concerns for faculty who teach in higher education and student affairs graduate preparation, social foundations of education, counseling, educational psychology, educational policy, and educational leadership and administration programs. The book can be used as a training manual for new and continuing faculty and staff in student, business and academic affairs as well as governance.
Brown received a bachelor's degree from Kansas University, master's degrees from Miami and Emporia State universities, and a doctorate from Indiana University-Bloomington. He currently teaches at Missouri State University in Springfield and is the parent of a KU sophomore.
