The second piece of that is action. Decolonization is actively resisting oppressive systems in research, teaching and service. Decolonization is decentering standards and expectations that reinforce oppressive hierarchies.” Read the full article here: https://cw.ua.edu/83310/culture/we-do-not-live-in-a-post-colonial-world-ua-professors-talk-decolonization-in-academia/
