Centers for Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT)
AAC&U has been awarded a $520,000 grant over a three-year period from Newman’s Own Foundation and a $399,763 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to create Centers for Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) at higher education institutions across the country.
The grants will support a multi-year initiative to implement ten TRHT Centers, which will be designed to engage and empower campus and community stakeholders to break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community. As part of this initiative, AAC&U will create a TRHT Institute, which will assist campuses in the development of transformative action plans to advance racial healing. The goal of the Centers, as designed through the Institute, will be to empower individuals to live and prosper in a civil and humane society that promotes full inclusion for everyone.
In alignment with the focus areas of Newman’s Own Foundation and the Kellogg Foundation, AAC&U believes that the work of the proposed Centers will empower people to live and to prosper in a civil and humane society that promotes full inclusion for everyone.
