General Information
Bucknell University is taking multiple steps to implement its initiative to "support diverse communities". Among other actions, the university has created an Anti-Racism fund and is considering the incorporation of "the study of injustice and inequality across the curriculum." No Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. See developments below:

Critical Race Training Activity

  • Symbolic Actions

    The president’s senior team, the Operations and Management Group, will include the Associate Provost For Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

  • Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training

    Training and reviews will be required of all employees to address "common workplace issues as unconscious bias, search process design and systemic pay disparities."

  • Curriculum Changes and Requirements

    The university is "committed to incorporating the study of injustice and inequality across the curriculum." It is also considering coursework on the "role of privilege in contemporary society."

  • Program and Research Funding

    "...an Anti-Racism Fund will support campus-wide anti-racism and anti-bias efforts including but not limited to facilitator training, resource materials, curriculum development, and faculty, staff and student education and programming."
