In light of recent protests on college campuses and incidents at Tulane, librarians created a guide with resources to support discussions of race and diversity in higher education. The guide includes links to articles, books, and websites that explore issues of diversity and inclusion on campus, including the “Diversity in Academe” series from The Chronicle of Higher Education. Links to recent racial incidents on college campuses, resources about discussing race in the classroom, and links to relevant research databases are also part of the guide. The guide also gathers resources that put the issues in context.
