Becoming an Anti-Racist Institution
Beginning in 2020, more than 100 students, faculty, and staff worked tirelessly across five separate workstreams–Institutional Audit and Targeted Action, Campus Safety and Policing, Public Art, Compositional Diversity, and Equity and Inclusion–to audit the status quo, identify possible solutions, and make recommendations. View the recommendations, helpful guides, and the university dashboard.
