In his seminal work The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. Du Bois wrote that the single most pressing issue facing the United States was the color line. More than 100 years later, the issue of race remains a pressing one for the U.S. and research suggests that the racial divide permeates our culture. Furthermore, numerous studies have found that today’s college students are not sufficiently prepared to interact and communicate effectively in a culturally-diverse and globalized workplace and do not possess many of the 21st century competencies necessary for success and engagement in such diverse environments. But in comparison, we wonder how prepared are faculty, administrators, and staff to cultivate a space where these skills can develop?

In December 2012, a young woman named Jyoti Singh was raped in New Delhi while returning home after watching a film with her friend. The incident quickly became a sensational news story in both national and international media, leading to an unprecedented amount of popular protests in New Delhi and other Indian cities. To be precise, the Jyoti Singh Rape Case proved to be a watershed moment in the history of the contemporary gendered mobilizations in India, which unleashed a series of questions for the Indian women’s movement.
