Educational Resources (DPB)

As part of RCC's ongoing effort to provide resources to the entire community, the Diversity Programming Board is hosting a multimedia collection on anti-racism, diversity, and equity. This compilation of resources is not in any way intended to be exhaustive or definitive; there is a plethora of resources that exist beyond RCC.

Please share this page with others, and also share with us any important resources that you would like to recommend we add.
