This guide was created to be a localized place for the Gannon community to access resources that support our mission of moving coursework towards a more racially-just pedagogy. We are currently working hand-in-hand with faculty from the College of Humanities, Education, and Social Sciences (CHESS). This guide is meant to be fluid. As more current and relevant content is created, it is our intention to update this guide so it will accurately represent current best practices. We hope to expand this guide to include discipline-specific material for various academic departments. Please visit the Contact page if you like to see a resource included!
A current update on Gannon's work from the Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Steering Committee is available here.
Check back for more events soon!

The University of Pittsburgh: Justice Collective - School of Education: The University of Pittsburgh is hosting a study group to fight against Anti-Black Racism. White Co-Conspirators groups are led by white colleagues in their Collective community. The groups serve as forums for white people to further their learning and collaboration on equity, justice, and anti-racism, with the expectation that this work will lead to meaningful co-conspiring and productive activism. Are you interested in facilitating or joining a group? Email our Justice Collective Facilitator Anneliese Martinez to learn more at email@example.com.
As part of the 2020 Gannon CHESS Series, longtime Gannon faculty member Dr. Parris Baker examines how racism was ingrained in the founding of the United States and the historical events that have led to the current Black Lives Matter movement. The focus on making reflective and reflexive change and the desire to re-evaluate processes at the micro and macro level are two areas Dr. Baker believes can result in significant change.
