Our advising community is driven to address systemic inequality and is eager for knowledge, skills, and resources that can help in holding these conversations, not only with our students, but with ourselves, our colleagues, and our community. Discrimination and racism have no place on the CU Boulder campus. These resources are available to the community as chances to engage, learn, and listen. This guide will be a work in progress and will be updated with more opportunities and links to campus programs, as they develop.

These opportunities will not end here.

It is essential for us to continue in an ongoing conversation about racism and inequality in our society. To do so, the advising community must have the tools they need to create inclusive spaces and engage in conversation around race with their students. I am committed to thoughtfully incorporating conversations about race, racism, and inequalities within long-term, campus-wide development programming for all members of the advising community. Such programming involves collaborating with key campus partners, departments, staff, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion groups from across campus to create an intentional, thoughtful, and, most importantly, impactful experience for advisors, coaches, and student services professionals.
