Sociology 1991 /

Dr. Robin DiAngelo

"The training in sociology I received at Seattle University has been invaluable to my life's work in racial justice education. My entire body of scholarship - as well as my daily practice as a group facilitator - is grounded in a sociological framework. This framework has enabled me to see the social dynamics at play that are not necessarily conscious or intentional but impacting outcomes nonetheless."

Dr. Robin DiAngelo

"There is a question that has never failed me in my efforts to uncover how - despite our claims of support for racial equality - our institutions continue to reproduce racial inequality. That question is not whether any particular claim is true or false. That question is, "How does this claim function?" This is fundamentally a sociological question."

"The questions we ask are of critical importance for they inform the directions we take in seeking answers. My background in sociology has provided me the analytical tools to make a contribution to a more racially equitable society."
