Emerging Antiracism Framework & Resources

As a result of three campus-wide Critical Conversations on Race held during the summer, 2020, as well as the input of the participants in the College Leadership Retreat in August, 2020, the Planning & Budgeting Council (PBC) considered a draft Antiracism Framework at their September 2 and September 16 meetings.  Campus feedback is sought online and in college council, senate, committee and division meetings.  In addition, the PBC is considering the formation of a college-wide Anti-Racism Task Force.
