Race & Ethnicity

Race & Ethnicity

The goal of this community is to provide resources for people who identify with, who are interested in learning more about or who want to support diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. This community offers connections, opportunities, experiences and resources to help navigate obstacles that may arise along your personal and professional journey. In addition, this community is designed to support diverse members of racial or ethnic minority groups that encounter unique challenges throughout their personal, social, academic and professional development. This community recognizes, appreciates, celebrates, promotes, and supports each individual because of their diversity and contributions. We call them “rope teams” because these communities, as many as you are interested in accessing, are here to support your student and alum journey as well as to provide you with an opportunity to support the journey of those you want to help succeed.
