Commit to Care + Act

Commit to Care + Act

Commit to Care + Act is a central location for campus programming designed to provide education, resources, and support for faculty, staff, and students related to racial equity and social justice.

Building a campus community that is serious about racial equity and justice is our collective work as Bobcats, and we in the Division of Diversity and Inclusion are determined to initiate, amplify, and continue important opportunities for social justice learning and action right here at OHIO.



    We aim to provide a continuous list of campus-wide and Athens community social justice-focused programming and activities. 


    Feedback and Perspectives

    We encourage community members to provide constructive suggestions about what can help them feel supported at OHIO.



    Hear from Bobcats of color as they share their lived experiences, and engage in the discussion. 



    Browse resources for students, faculty, staff, and allies in regards to racial inequality and social justice. 

Creating Space

Under the umbrella of Commit to Care + Act, we hope to create spaces for all OHIO community members to:

  • Process questions, challenges, and ideas related to equity and social justice.
  • Reflect on individual efforts to educate and engage around issues of racism.
  • Share resources to facilitate ongoing learning and action.


  • Find opportunities and practice strategies to engage in productive dialogue about implicit bias, microaggressions, and other forms of exclusion and discrimination.
  • Identify actionable steps for what institutional changes can look like.
