DEI Library

Below is a collection of literature, videos, and podcasts pertaining to core DEI issues. Although many of these resources address DEI specifically in the higher education landscape, others speak more generally to DEI issues in a global context. Topics include solidarity, allyship, and antiracism. 
Resources were selected based on personal recommendations from the committee’s members as well as those of the previous committee. The library will be periodically updated with new resources as the committee discovers relevant, engaging resources. If you are seeking information on a topic not found here, please contact Isabel Enad at ienad@umich.edu.
