This page contains information on how to build an anti-racist society. Given the recent deaths of Breonna Taylor, Amaud Arbery, and George Floyd, our work is even more important.
Institutional Diversity, Equity, Advocacy and Leadership (IDEAL) continues to provide resources to the Temple University campus community on dismantling systems of oppression. Review our digital brochure to learn more about our office.
Our priority is to ensure that we provide relevant resources to the campus community. Below are various articles, books, videos, etc that focus on building an anti-racist society. This list will be updated frequently.
How to engage with us
During our remote work, we continue to support to the campus community in the following ways:
- Hosting virtual hours during the hours of 12pm-3pm, M-F
- Diversity and inclusion consultations
- Offering specialized workshops and presentations on Racial Justice
We are committed to having critical dialogues in brave settings that allow deeper processing to occur. Sample dialogues being offered include:
- Envisioning Racial Justice
- Self-Care in a time of Racial Trauma
- Racial identity presentation and panel during New Student Orientation
IDEAL Workshop Slides
Our office has created and facilitated various presentations in response to promoting racial justice. Review the slide decks.
Note the Envisioning Racial Justice slides will be uploaded at the conclusion of the third session on June 11, 2020.
