We challenge the Rutgers community to think about diversity in new ways and invite the public to draw on our resources and take part in our conversations on how to advance a more just society.
Commit to taking active steps now to become anti-racist. We have provided a few suggestions below to get you started.
- Work independently through the Anti-Racist Resource List and commit to doing the ongoing work needed to facilitate true change.
- Create a small/virtual group to work through and grapple with the resources together. Think collectively about how you can have an impact within your sphere of influence (ex: department, unit, grad student culture).
- Set aside 3 hours to review the resources in the "Understand How Race Shapes Experiences in Higher Education," reflect on your organizational position and identify concrete steps you can take to promote a more inclusive academic culture.
