EDI Resources

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 as we achieve the goal of an anti-racist, diverse, inclusive, accessible, and equitable campus. CON’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Initiative has developed this EDI resource guide as part of this commitment. This EDI guide is made up of curated resources to help you think more deeply about EDI and understand how these concepts are central to creating an equitable, diverse, and inclusive community.
