Speaker’s bio:
Julie J. Park is Associate Professor of education at the University of
Maryland, College Park. Her research addresses how race, religion, and
social class affect diversity and equity in higher education, including
the diverse experiences of Asian American college students. She is
currently Principal Investigator on a project funded by the National
Science Foundation, “Connections Matter: The Impact of Social Capital
and Social Ties for STEM College Students.”

Her book Race on Campus: Debunking Myths with Data (Harvard Education
Press, 2018) tackles misconceptions about how race and diversity work in
higher education. She is also the author of When Diversity Drops: Race,
Religion, and Affirmative Action in Higher Education (Rutgers University
Press, 2013), an examination of how universities are affected by bans on
affirmative action.

Besides being published in academic journals, her commentary has also
appeared in venues like the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, and
the Chronicle of Higher Education. Dr. Park earned her Ph.D. in
Education from UCLA (Higher Education and Organizational Change), with a
graduate concentration in Asian American Studies, and B.A. at Vanderbilt
University (Sociology, English, and Women’s Studies).
