It is important to listen, learn, and engage in conversations around issues of systemic racism. But what’s needed most is concrete action. We must move beyond our words and take proactive steps to examine our individual biases, rethink existing systems and structures, and implement plans for a more equitable future. Following are a list of upcoming events and ways to get involved in this work on campus.

Upcoming Events

  • 6th Annual Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Institute

    Join the UTLC for a digital version of the 6th Annual Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Institute, based on the Sustained Dialogue model as a way of fostering inclusive classrooms. 

    This annual institute provides faculty with opportunities to explore topics related to equity in today’s learning environments, from inclusive language to handling difficult conversations. Faculty will work to develop tools and strategies for discussing topics, creating inclusive conversations, understanding aspects of identity, and “navigating classroom dynamics, advising/mentoring, and conflict” (Sustained Dialogue).

    The Institute will be available from August 7 to September 25.

  • Triad Black Lives Matter Protest Collection

    The purpose of the Triad Black Lives Matters Collection is to document the BLM movement, police brutality protests, and race relations in the Triad area of North Carolina. The collection contains digital photographs and video footage relating to the Black Lives Matter movement and the George Floyd protests.

    Collecting for the project is ongoing, and the archive is particularly interested in photographs, video, protest signs, clothing, flyers, posters, creative works, etc. Additionally, the archive would like to document local organizations involved with the movement. The material can be historic, originating with the founding of the movement, as well as current. Physical and digital material can be accepted into the collection.

  • We Here – Black Lives Matter

    Libraries have played a major role in the white racial project of this country. We do not have the luxury of ignoring what is happening because it is happening to us, our family members and loved ones. So we write to you today urging everyone to continue educating yourselves, make a donation, sign a petition, call politicians, and begin a discussion with your fellow staff members. We’ve pulled together a few places you can take action. There are many more, so think of these as a starting place.
