Training Overview

Protect students from all forms of racism. Build an inclusive environment free from discrimination.

Despite the recent national dialogue around inclusivity, students in higher education continue to be plagued by environments that exclude them, limit their potential, and depress their spirits. They are frequently subjected to microaggressions, implicit bias, discriminatory practices, and uninformed policies.

Even antiracist schools ignore some behaviors that do not rise to the level of harassment or obvious discrimination. Nevertheless, these repeated and systemic missteps can be even worse than more blatant expressions of racism in their long-term impact on students.
