KATIE SPENCER Mike brown extra credit I was surprised while reading this that as the dean of a university, one of the highest positions you can achieve, she still faced racism.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
