Anti-Racism Resources

"As an institution, we are committed to maintaining an environment where students from all backgrounds can thrive and grow as members of a caring, inclusive community. Racism has no place at SUNY Cortland. That means that we, as a university and as individuals who believe that the weed of intolerance limits opportunity and stifles potential, must do more."

 – President Erik J. Bitterbaum

21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge from Dr. Eddie Moore Jr.

This self-paced offering challenges participants to do one thing every day to understand and work towards anti-racism. According to the website, the opportunities include suggestions for readings, podcasts, videos, observations and “ways to form and deepen community connections.” Although appropriate for individuals, there are also suggestions for ways to adapt the challenge for groups and communities.

Anti-Racism Training

Offered by Diversity and Resilience Institute of El Paso, this online training is free and open to the public. Other SUNY campuses are recommending this training to their employees. The virtual training is structured into three modules with two hours of content in each and provides opportunities for breaks and self-pacing. According to the training website, participants will:

  • Learn about historical events, ideologies and social structures and how they inform modern-day beliefs, bias and perception.
  • Analyze concepts of racial identity, bias, privilege and prejudice
  • Reflect on their own identity, bias, privilege and prejudice
  • Identify strategies to engage in difficult conversations
  • Reflect on ways to integrate anti-racism work into their daily lives

SUNY Cortland Anti-Racism Action

Connect with other SUNY Cortland community members engaged in anti-racist learning and action:

  1. This fall, each department/program/office is going to engage in a strategic planning process to become more anti-racist. Based on your learning, what anti-racist learning or actions would you recommend to your colleagues? 
  2. Document the ways in which your learning and reflection are changing your practice as a professor, researcher and community member. Do you have channels to share this learning with your students? With your academic community? If you don’t, how can you work toward creating a conversation about your learning and the changes in your practice?
