Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Make Respect Visible

We recognize the relentless impact that prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination have on mental health and well-being, and we are here if you need to talk. We as a staff feel and understand the many reactions that can ensue from these events, such as fear, anger, sadness, rage and grief. We are processing how systems of oppression and traumatic events impact your feelings, beliefs, and identities, and we are here to help you connect to resources that feel safe and that resonate with you.   

CPS will continue to confront the traumatic and unjust impact of prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination by challenging ourselves, our perceptions, values, and priorities.  We continue to join with students and with other offices on campus to collaborate on conversations about racial injustices and prejudice.  Though supporting our students who feel directly impacted by racism is paramount, we also strongly advocate for the antiracist education and allyship of all students, faculty, and staff. We encourage the OHIO community to engage in meaningful reflection and advocacy. The resources below may resonate with the Bobcat community as ways in which we can both support those who are hurting and join together to facilitate a more inclusive and supportive environment for all.
