General Information
Although the University of Northern Iowa has not yet implemented further anti-racist actions, it has created a six-week program where participants can register online for a guided “Quest” that will “cultivate habits of consciously and consistently practicing anti-racism.” No Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. See developments below:

    "For 6-weeks, participants on the Quest will receive weekly newsletters that will guide them as they cultivate habits of consciously and consistently practicing anti-racism. Each week’s newsletter includes a welcome video from a community leader, a quotation to contemplate, a community assignment to complete, and questions for reflection and discussion."
