GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion webpage includes digital tools, online exercises, video instructions, scholarly articles and links to many more resources tailored for faculty, staff, students, friends of the College and individuals committed to racial equality.
A rash of racially charged incidents—from the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wisc. to acts of police brutality resulting in the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd—and the protests they provoked in cities around the country—has prompted the College to create resources for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of historical and present-day issues of racism in the United States. This list is just a brief introduction to the myriad resources that can be found online.
On Friday, Aug. 28, Thiel College hosted an event, in conjunction with an event in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the 57th anniversary of the March on Washington.
