Day of Collective Action
March 22, 2022
This Day of Collective Action is a campus-wide moment of reflection and action designed to propel our collective goal to create an inclusive community forward. On this day, we ask students, faculty and staff to participate in workshops and other activities that will address racism, bias and discrimination. Specifically, we want to address the harm members of the Black community experience, which have been amplified in recent weeks.
The Day of Collective Action is a starting point. It is a part of the broader equity, diversity and inclusion work happening across campus in various forms. Further, we will use the feedback and learning that result from the day to deepen our understanding, fortify our resolve to keep every member of our community safe and to take specific action steps that both support and facilitate our collective healing. Most importantly, this will be the first annual event focused on collective community action.
We encourage academic programs to incorporate themes and faculty and instructors to participate in classroom reflection. We also ask that we all promote flexibility for students and faculty in relation to holding and attending classes on this important day.
More details to come.
