Resources about Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice

WORTH VIEWING:  How Members of Gen-Z are Approaching this Historic Moment of Change (PBS NewsHour, June 12, 2020).  Generation Z speaks out about what this historical time in American history related to its ongoing struggle for social justice through the Black Lives Matter protests nationwide. Faculty and university recruiters for new students are well-advised to heed the passions of these young adults--especially the two young people, Thandiwe Abdullah and Jalen Thompson, who are the last interviewed.  They provide an excellent articulation of the social policy changes needed to achieve a true, non-racially biased, socially just system in the United States.  These young people are all remarkable!  This is our immediate and future student body--and we welcome your voices and energy.
