UO Senate Resource Tool for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

The Senate Antiracism Academy is pleased to share this Library Research Guide with our campus community as a starting point for self-directed education on systemic racism and inclusion-building. ​This Guide also is intended to provide a special resource for members of the UO Senate. Engendered by the Resolution Against Racism and Systemic Oppression, this collection of sources was gathered in consultation with the Division of Equity and Inclusion (see the “Special Thanks” section for a full list of contributors). Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and Pacific Islander scholars and their allies have created a vast literature of scholarly work on these topics, and this entrée into such literature emphasizes anti-black racism as a timely starting place. We hope you each will find voices here that speak to your work and help you put these equity-driven insights to practice, developing inclusive pedagogies, and creating more equitable classrooms and workspaces throughout the UO. ​The Guide is comprised of 12 sections: 

  • Inclusion in the Academy
  • Ethics of Care
  • Race as a Legal, Social and Economic Construct
  • Intersectionality
  • Equity
  • Colorblindness
  • Racial Trauma in the Academy
  • Antiracism
  • Belonging and Allyship
  • Equitable Grading Strategies
  • Teaching Inclusion
  • Opening Up Education
