Separate and Unequal Again: The Disparate Impact Texas Gag Orders May Have on Texas's Second-Oldest Institution of Higher Learning

By Tabitha S. M. Morton

Abstract:

Academic freedom allows faculty at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to create programs, revise classes, and provide opportunities that best serve their students. Texas passed Senate Bill 3 (S.B. 3) in 2021 to limit academic freedom and eliminate critical race theory from public education. If legislation expands S.B. 3 to higher education, it may disproportionally affect Prairie View A&M University, an HBCU, and its newly created program Broadening Global Learning Opportunities Building Academic Leaders (B-GLOBAL). B-GLOBAL is designed to provide minority students with opportunities to develop the global competencies of self-awareness, global awareness, social responsibility, and cultural knowledge they need to succeed in today’s interconnected world. This article discusses the potential effects of Texas gag orders on the Prairie View A&M University faculty, students, and the successful B-GLOBAL program.
