Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources

Being an anti-racist college of education means, in part, that we will have multiple and repeated opportunities to grapple with and disrupt systems, policies, and practices that perpetuate injustices for racial and other marginalized populations. In order to do this effectively, faculty, students, and staff will need to expand their awareness and knowledge about the historical legacy of racism in this country and how it is embedded deeply within the social fabric of education and society. The resources provided here will help shift our frames of reference and expand forms of knowledge; thus, giving us tools and information to disrupt dominant narratives that perpetuate social inequities.
