Although scholarship has inspected the role of neoliberalism in higher education, little work names higher education in the United States as an institution that perpetuates death and violence of the most marginalized communities. By engaging in a critical analysis, this research locates and explicitly names higher education as a necropolitical institution, highlighting the sites of power higher education/actors exert over marginalized populations through neoliberal tools of the state. This article makes higher education decision makers and stakeholders aware of their role in their participation in deathly and violent practices.
