We strive to build a network of resources to educate, support and improve individual and department level practices relating to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Not only do we hope to build and improve within but in doing so have made use of external resources and relationships to aid in the process. The list of resources below are some our department has used as tools/templates to build our knowledge and resources base. Not only will these resources educate but they also provide insight on how to create action items, strategic planning to develop a diverse, equitable, and inclusion program for all.
