Higher Education Working Group Members

The membership of the Higher Education Working Group is composed of leaders of some of the world’s most comprehensive “Hate Studies” programs. 

About Our Members

This working group is developing ways to support the growing interdisciplinary field of Hate Studies. Hate Studies is premised on the idea that to combat hate we need both to understand it as part of the human condition, and to weave knowledge from the various isolated academic fields together in order to provide usable theories about how hate works, and what to do about it.

Some of the key members of the Higher Education Working Group include:
