We're Here to Help

We commit to ensuring students, faculty, and staff feel a sense of belonging and have a voice to help bring about racial healing and transformation, respond to racist and biased incidents, and help to shape our journey towards an anti-racist, accessible, and fair campus. The College of Nursing’s initiative has developed this resource guide as part of this commitment. This guide is composed of curated resources to help you think more deeply about these concepts and understand how they are central to creating a fair and welcoming community.
