COLLEGE-WIDE INITIATIVE ON
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.
Action 1: Develop Action Plan
Action 2: Review and Enhance Policies
Results are being shared from one of the earliest, and most important, steps in Meredith’s anti-racism initiative, which was to undertake a nationally normed campus climate survey of undergraduate and graduate students, employees, and alumnae/i.
This year’s “PIE” conference focused specifically on the College’s anti-racism efforts, both to share information about what is taking place and to provide learning opportunities for the larger community.
Meredith’s Summer Reading book for 2021 is Tell Me Who You Are: Sharing our Stories of Race, Culture and Identity, by Winona Gua and Priya Vulcht.
