Greetings,

As protests continue to erupt in response to the death of George Floyd, it is incumbent upon us all to affirm the inherent dignity of every individual and take action against racial injustice, the mistreatment of people of color, and discrimination in all of its forms. For the sake of our students, whose lives are shaped by these tragedies, we must be ready to engage in these critical dialogues and make it evident that we are committed to equity and equality. Below you will find a sample of free resources that you and your department or office can use to educate and prepare yourselves to address issues related to racial injustice and discrimination. In addition, all members of our community are encouraged to report incidents of bias by completing our Incident Reporting Form.
