It is essential to take a strong stand against systemic racism and discrimination. This includes a commitment to identify and address racism and discrimination in matters relating to academic and non-academic student misconduct. In this report I synthesize existing resources and issue a call to action to collect more race-based data relating to student conduct for the purposes of identifying and addressing systemic injustices perpetuated by existing higher education reporting, policies and procedures.
Purpose: This report highlights ways in which race-based data can be used to combat systemic racism in matters relating to academic and non-academic and student misconduct.
Methods: Information synthesis of available information relating to race-based data and student conduct.
Results: A summary and synthesis of how and why race-based data can be used to identify and combat discrimination of students with regards to academic and non-academic misconduct.
Implications: Through this report, an argument is made for more attention to fair and equitable treatment of students in matters relating to academic and non-academic misconduct regardless of race, colour, language or country of origin.
