Faculty Resources

Dear Faculty,

The Office of Diversity / Affirmative Action & Compliance is committed to the creation of a campus climate that is conducive to the success of every student, and as such, this diversity resource page has been set up just for you. In the below links, you will find resources that we hope will be of value to you, both in and out of the classroom. Resources are offered to begin for some, and or continue for others an important dialogue on the ever changing diversity of our student body.

Please note that these resources will be updated regularly, but are not comprehensive. We understand that neither this office nor any of us alone has absolute knowledge and expertise on this very important issue, therefore, we seek your assistance in adding to this resource page. Should you have a resource that you would like to share with the campus community via this forum, please feel free to email us the link or PDF at diversity@worcester.edu. Additionally, as you explore links/resources, please take the opportunity to engage in both formal as well as informal conversations with your colleagues and or this office to discuss these materials.

Thank you for taking time to explore these resources. We in the office of Diversity / Affirmative Action and Compliance hope that you will find them both helpful and insightful. I look forward to hearing from you and engaging in conversations on the many topics which will be highlighted via this resource page.
