General Information
The University of Arizona has not yet implemented a university-wide anti-racism initiative. However, a university project team is developing an "Anti-Racism Extended Reality Studio." No Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. See developments below:

Actions Taken

Program and Research Funding
  • A $50,000 grant has been given to help a University of Arizona team develop the "Anti-Racism Extended Reality Studio."
Resources
  • The University has a stated goal of transforming every aspect of campus life using Inclusive Excellence as its model: "We want to transform UA into the quintessential IE university for the 21st century. Achieving this goal will depend on how well the campus community values and engages the rich diversity of students, staff, faculty, administrators, alumni and community constituents. More than a short-term project or the effort of a single office, this comprehensive approach engages everyone in complete cultural institutional transformation by embedding and practicing IE in every endeavor, aspect and level of the university."
  • There are resources for "Bystander Intervention" and tools to "stand in solidarity."
  • The library offers numerous resources broken down by topics like "intersectionality" and "accountability."
Symbolic Actions
  • University of Arizona Health Sciences announced its commitment to anti-racism. It also included links to Harvard's "Implicit Bias Test" as well as "Guidelines for Effective White Caucuses."
  • The UA Colleges of Medicine are creating initiatives to fight the history of medical racism.
