We have been asked about supplying resources to our campus community about how to talk about race. Together with the input and suggestions from colleagues, students, and community members we have been updating this list on a regular basis. Please take a look and see if anything might be beneficial for the work that you do. If anyone has access to resources that you feel others might benefit from and that is not listed here, please forward those to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly add them to this growing list. Thank you!
“We're better than THAT”
Racism and hate speech have no place at the University of Rochester. We aspire to be a community whose members are equally valued and respected.
“We’re better than THAT” (the University of Rochester’s anti-racism campaign) places the power and responsibility to shape our community in each of our hands. By learning ways to react when we offend others or are offended by them, or when we witness an ugly comment or conversation, we can acknowledge and act on this shared responsibility.
