“What can I do?”
Go far, go together to fulfill the promise of diversity, to be a community where people of different cultures, intellectual positions, and lifestyles can reach their full potential.

- Have conversations with peers and work to educate yourself about issues of equity and inclusion. Here are some resources that could serve as conversation starters:
- If you witness or experience a bias motivated incident, take action. Review our policies on hate crimes and bias as well as our whistle-blower policy and take note of the many resources available to you.
- Take inventory of your worldview- how have biases, stereotypes and myths influenced how you see the world? The Harvard Implicit Bias Association Test may serve as a resource on this journey of exploration.
- Look for the #USTgofargotogether for events that will be used to promote campus events and opportunities, as well as initiative materials intended to spark conversations about these important issues.
Join us for an around the table discussion on Thursday, April 14th at 4 p.m. in ASC Woulfe North about the important issues surrounding cultural appreciation and/or appropriation.
