COLLEGE-WIDE INITIATIVE ON
ANTI-RACISM

ANTI-RACISM INITIATIVE

Meredith College is working to address the racism that is affecting BIPOC students, faculty, staff, and alumnae who are valued and respected members of our community. This effort is ongoing, inclusive, action oriented, and root focused.

President Jo Allen announced a college-wide initiative on anti-racism in June 2020. Inspired and informed by Meredith’s Black Student Union, Latinx students, alumnae/i, and many more, the Initiative is being conducted with transparency to reflect our commitment to strength, integrity, and effecting change through education.

BECAUSE BLACK AND BROWN LIVES MATTER.
