North American colleges and universities are plagued with wokeness, amid institutions embracing an “Equity, Diversity and Inclusion” (EDI) agenda.

EDI has earned criticism from black and racialized scholars – including renowned American Ivy League scholar Dr. Carol Swain.

True North’s Elie Cantin-Nantel, who runs the Campus Watch series, spoke with Dr. Swain about how the equity agenda is negatively impacting academia, and why merit in education is paramount. They also discussed the rise in woke racial segregation taking place on campuses.

Dr. Swain is an award-winning political scientist, a former professor of political science and law at Vanderbilt University, and a former associate professor of politics and public policy at Princeton University. She is also the author of several books.
