Actions Taken

Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training
  • The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee offers training in the form of “an interactive workshop on anti-racism and exploring race, bias, and identity.” This training was offered throughout spring of 2023.
Curriculum Changes and Requirements
  • It was announced that, “the Faculty Senate approved the edited Course Evaluation instrument that will be adopted in Fall 2022 with additional questions to gauge the inclusivity of the class experience and the diversity of the curricula, as appropriate to the discipline, among other revisions.”
  • SHU will now impose an A&S Diversity Requirement where all students in the College of Arts and Sciences are required to complete a diversity course.
Disciplinary Measures
  • SHU stated that, “in 2021, the University implemented the Bias Education Support Team (BEST), which provides support-related resources to campus community members who have experienced, witnessed, and/or are aware of a bias incident.”
Faculty/Staff Requirements
  • It was stated that, “all Faculty serving on faculty and administrative search committees are required to attend a diversity training facilitated by Human Resources and the Office of EEO Compliance & Title IX.”
