Campus-connected Resources on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Student Engagement

We hope this list will assist students, faculty, staff, and members of the larger community to access resources on racial justice, diversity initiatives and trainings, and programs and projects that promote equity and inclusion at the University of Illinois.

This list will continue to be updated and expanded over time in partnership with the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
