WISCAPE's Radomski expresses support for campus KKK study

September 13, 2017
Noel Radomski, managing director of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE), is among ​many individuals expressing support for ​UW-Madison's decision to look into the campus’s history with the Ku Klux Klan.

Though the research will be controversial, ​Radomski ​said in a Badger Herald article, ​​open lines of communication are key to keeping the campus united in a time of possible division.

“If the ad hoc committee’s work is open, they adopt a strong outreach component during their work and after the report is finalized, then over time it will likely contribute to more inclusion,” Radomski said.

To make the study an “excellent educational moment,” the study group should "hold open forums, work with other UW organizations and keep the UW community updated as new information comes to light," he continued. The group "should also look at the role the campus faculty leaders played in the clubs affiliations with the KKK" to ​reach full conclusions​ about the activities happening in the 1920s.

“As [we] know, in the 1920s, unlike today, student life, including student organizations, was heavily controlled by faculty and campus leaders,” Radomski said.

WISCAPE is housed in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis (ELPA) within UW-Madison's School of Education.
