His research examines issues of diversity and equity in higher education, with particular attention to the ways in which whiteness structures college and university campuses. This work explores both white students' relationship to, and understanding of, race and whiteness as well as the consequences of whiteness in the lives of students of color at historically white colleges and universities.
