PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Brown University is launching a series of lectures and workshops on racism.

Tricia Rose, a professor who heads Brown’s Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, will direct the project, the university announced Monday. She’ll lead the first session Dec. 2.

The free program will focus on “structural racism” in housing, education, wealth, criminal justice and mass media. It will continue through the spring and fall 2016 semesters.

The announcement comes after the Ivy League college in Providence unveiled an action plan and pledged to spend $100 million over the next decade to address diversity and racism on campus.

Earlier this month, graduate students demanded administrators increase efforts to improve race relations after a visiting Dartmouth College student was detained while attending a conference for Latino students.
