Dean Thornton Dill's ARHU's Campaign on Race, Equity and Justice have the following goals:

  1. Increase knowledge among students and faculty of systemic racism and the issues related to anti-racist practice

  2. Transform curriculum and scholarship to center the experiences of historically underrepresented communities

  3. Increase engagement and motivation of students, staff and faculty to plan, speak and act for equity, justice and elimination of systemic racism.  

  4. Reduce incidents of individual and systemic racism and discrimination found in teaching, research and service in the college

  5. Expand the impact of ARHU’s work on racism, equity and justice through community and other partnerships.
