As faculty and staff, it’s our job to support students from the moment they decide to apply to the moment they collect their diploma. The advice and encouragement they receive from us will help to shape their experience, develop their skills, and prepare them for successful and rewarding careers.
Faculty Fighting Racism
The Graduate School Diversity Consultation Team has launched Faculty Fighting Racism, an online, curated set of books, articles, videos, and podcasts for graduate faculty intended to serve as a first step in understanding what it means to be anti-racist. The website will be updated regularly with new content.

The purpose of this project is to encourage the University of Minnesota community – students, faculty & staff – to engage in authentic and sometimes difficult discussions about diversity on our campus. How do we define diversity? Why are we investing in diversifying our graduate student and postdoctoral populations? What does it mean to genuinely value difference?
