Our Commitment to Educational Equity & Racial Justice
"Adequate and equitable resources are important to the future success and development of Black students." (nea.org)
Our Academic Resource Programs are specifically intended to support every student's opportunity for access to & engagement in their academic pursuits. As such, we take seriously our responsibility to learn about a long history of systemic and institutional racism so that we can engage with our community in ways that promote educational access and equity.
We are held accountable by each of you to listen, learn, and act.
Our Action Steps:
1. We commit to educating ourselves through collaborative training to better understand inequality, racism, and racial injustice as they relate to equitable opportunity in education.
2. We commit to increased hiring of Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Students of Color as Peer Academic Coaches.
3. We commit to increased outreach to Black, Brown, Indigenous, and Students of Color and to help reduce any stigma associated with academic support.
For more information about these Action Steps, please email Amy Faust.
