General Information
USF has taken steps to finance research into critical race theory and anti-racism. The provost created a $500,000 research fund to research “systemic racism” and find potential solutions. USF has also financed the creation of the DARE Dashboard, which collects data on students, faculty, and staff. This data will be used to make policies designed to "institutionalize" antiracism. No mandatory Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. However, see developments below:
