Announcing the GoUSF 15 Day Racial Equity Challenge

An Opportunity to Learn, Reflect, and Take Action for Racial Justice

We are pleased to invite the entire USF Staff and Faculty community to engage in the 15-Day Racial Equity Challenge taking place April 5-23 presented in collaboration with the GoUSF Racial Equity Committee, the Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach (DECO), and the Institute for Nonviolence and Social Justice (INSJ). 

Our goal is to provide dedicated time and space for participants to build more effective social justice practices, particularly practices focused on issues of inequity, racism, resilience, strength, and community. All are welcome to join, regardless of race, ethnicity, prior anti-racism work, age, or background; and no matter where you are on your personal journey for racial equity.

Register for the challenge

In addition to the daily challenges, all members of our USF community are invited to join weekly discussion groups which will take place from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. on the three Fridays during the challenge. Pre-registration is required. Attendees can register below or visit the registration page on myUSF.
