Diversity Matters: The CSDD Podcast

The ‘Diversity Matters Podcast’ is a project of the Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy (CSDD). Each episode is hosted by CSDD Director, Dr. Alvin Tillery, Jr.

Launched in 2017, the Center’s mission is to stimulate research, dialogue, and civic engagement about the relationship between diversity and democratic politics. The ‘Diversity Matters’ podcast is way for us to amplify this mission by sharing our public events, interviews with our faculty affiliates, and discussions of the Center’s research, and conversations about current events related to the politics of diversity.

Episodes will be posted monthly. You can support our work by donating to Northwestern University’s “We Will Campaign” and designating your gift to the Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy.
