Getting Started with Equity: A Guide for Academic Department Leaders


Getting Started With Equity: A Guide for Academic Department Leaders has a very specific purpose, which is to serve as a first step for department chairs to develop and curate an educational environment that is simultaneously justice-centered and equity-advancing.

We do not contend that this is the guide for educators committed to equity-advancing work; there are many worthwhile resources and tools that illuminate and recommend best practices for equity in higher education. It is not a comprehensive handbook, but a place to start having conversations around how academic departments can work toward equity and justice in their curricula and teaching.
