The USM Intercultural Diversity Advisory Council (IDAC) has collaborated with the USM Libraries to collect educational resources on the subjects of anti-racism and identity from departments and programs at the University of Southern Maine. These materials are intended for use by anyone seeking to further their knowledge in these areas.
We recommend our Anti-Racism LibGuide as a starting point.
Classroom Resources - Materials for use in course instruction from K-12 to higher learning environments.
Discussion Guides - Guides to provide a framework for leading discussions and engaging in critical conversations on topics related to race, justice, and equity.
Reading Lists - Lists of reading from the various disciplines at the University of Southern Maine.
Lectures, Presentations, and Talks - Video recordings by various guest speakers and lecturers at the University of Southern Maine.
Resources for Support and Action - Links to external resources for activism, learning, and more.
We invite submissions from the University of Southern Maine community. You can submit material here.
