University of Pittsburgh's Anti-Racism Resource Toolkit

Pitt's Division of Student Affairs stands in soldiarity with our Black-identifying students and students of color and against systemic racism, police brutality, and injustice in any form. As part of our commitment to creating a safe and welcoming environment for all students, we are educating ourselves on the history of race in the United States of America, learning best practices in how to hold conversations about racism, and taking immediate, actionable steps toward change. 

The above toolkit is designed to meet you where you are. Some content is specifically aimed toward our Student Affairs staff, and some content is offered for our students. Some content addresses the concerns and trauma of Black-identifying students and staff, and some content addresses the concerns of White students and staff. Some of us are deep into the conversation about social justice, and some of us are just learning about these concepts. Wherever you are--start where you are today.
