Introduction to Racial Equity


The Introduction to Racial Equity module introduces the concepts of racial equity and racial healing within the context of California State University, Fullerton. Its intention is to raise individual awareness of these topics and explore how each person has a role in fostering an inclusive campus culture. The target audience is all students, staff, and faculty at CSUF.

As an employee of CSUF in the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity Programs (DIEP), it was my responsibility to take content from the live sessions and create self-paced digital modules. These modules provide an alternative option for those who prefer to experience content at their own pace rather than in a real-time live session context.

Note: I’m unable to share this module in its entirety (NDA). However, I have permission to share some excerpts on this page to help provide a glimpse into the module, which is now live at California State University, Fullerton.
