Share |

Below is our ever expanding diversity and social justice resource library. If you have suggestions to add please contact us.

  1. ACPA Social Justice Resource Project - A huge compilation of resources on a myriad of social justice and identity based topics. Learn more here: http://www.myacpa.org/comm/social/files/complete_resource_project.pdf 
  2. LGBTQ Architect - A great resource for anyone working with LGBTQ populations. Materials include sample funding proposals, position descriptions, outreach strategies, programming resources for small and large events, introductions to climate assessment, and many other useful tools for starting and/or furthering the work of campus-based resource programs. Learn more here: http://architect.lgbtcampus.org/
  3. MLK Day of Service - Though MLK day is over, I think this website and the message behind the MLK day of service is a really powerful one. I think this is a really good example and a really great place to get ideas if you wanted to do a social justice or diversity themed day of service. Learn more here: http://mlkday.gov/
  4. Mental Health First Aid - Here are some upcoming and past webinars on mental health topics http://www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/cs/what_you_learn/webinars

  6. Buying for Workplace Equality 2011 Index - The Human Rights Campaign's annual Workplace Equality Index for LGBTQ individuals. How inclusive is your favorite company? Learn more here: http://www.hrc.org/buyersguide2011/hrc-buyers-guide.pdf 
  7. Fighting Anti-Semitisim Organization based out of Denver, CO. The Anti-Defamation League. http://www.adl.org/about.asp?s=topmenu
  8. Speaker - The Anti-Defamation League facilitating "A Campus of Difference: Anti-Bias Training." This group facilitated two separate trainings on the day they were on campus. The morning session was for the professionals working at the university and the afternoon was dedicated to student leaders. They facilitated discussions central to the culture of our campus. We discussed what we can and should do to address the various manifestations of bias in our community.

  9. Project Implicit  - Project Implicit "blends basic research and educational outreach in a virtual laboratory at which visitors can examine their own hidden biases". Each "lab" takes between 5-10 minutes and provides the test-taker with a bias result based on their responses.  A very interesting tool for those of us who may not be aware of personal bias. learn more here: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/demo/
  10. Resident Aassistant.com - A broad Residence Life focused site with a variety of information. http://www.residentassistant.com/reslifepro/diversityresources.html
  11. Training Activity - BARNGA The goal of this "game" is to raise awareness of cultural differences, assumptions, and communication. Everyone will be playing the same game except that each group has just slightly different rules. When a player moves to a new group, unable to communicate, he will run into obstacles in winning a trick.
    When someone joins a new group, or moves to a new home, the rules in that new place are similar but with some important differences. This is a low level way to introduce a deeper, high stakes, conversation with student leaders. When someone new joins the majority group, club, staff, and culture, the majority needs to be flexible, supportive, patient, and reserve judgment when the student doesn't automatically fall into the established social norms.
