From Campus Reform:

An Aurora University professor recently required students to visit local stores and observe the number of products geared toward minority groups in order to make them aware of privilege.

The “Experiencing Discrimination—The “Scavenger Hunt” assignment, a copy of which was obtained by Campus Reform, was administered as part of Professor Renae Franiuk’s “Social and Applied Psychology” course, which explores “how one’s social environment affects his or her thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors.”
