General Announcements

Antiracism educational and engagement resources

Both the health disparities exposed by the COVID-19 virus and global protest movements against police brutality and anti-blackness have drawn increased attention to antiracism. Students, faculty, and staff seeking out resources for deepening their understanding of antiracist ideas and practices are welcome to visit The Popel Shaw Center’s website to download a pdf of resources labeled “Antiracist Educational and Engagement Resources” in the black navigational box. The list features links to highly engaging videos, articles, and essays, sure to increase your knowledge and generate conversation.

The PSC’s new mission to serve as “a campus resource for students, faculty, and staff dedicated to transforming Dickinson College into an inclusive antiracist learning environment” was developed in 2019-20, and is part of the three phase Dickinson Antiracism Project. This fall the Center will offer the community different educational opportunities to explore ways to apply antiracist practices to their life and work.
