Register by Friday, Jan. 22, for an opportunity to come together to share personal experiences and learnings.

University faculty, staff, and students from all campuses are invited to join the 21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge. Sponsored by the University’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement, this initiative is designed to encourage participants to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habitsparticularly for those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. 

As the University community continues its pursuit of racial justice on our campuses and beyond, the 21-day challenge—which begins on Martin Luther King Jr. Day—presents an opportunity to come together to share personal experiences and learnings. 

What to expect:

Each day, challenge participants will receive materials, including articles and podcasts, to absorb. Through these activities participants will discover the impact of racial and social injustice on our community, with the goal of forging connections with one another and identifying ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. 

How to participate:

Register by Friday, Jan. 22, to join the challenge, which starts Monday, Jan. 18, and ends on Sunday, Feb. 7. 

What happens next:

Upon completing the challenge, members of the group will have the opportunity to share their experiences in a virtual conversation.
