Anti-Black Racism Course Working Group

The Anti-Black Racism working group recommends that:

All UConn students be required to take a free, one-credit, Anti-Black Racism course. The course will be S/U graded and will be offered summer, fall, winter, and spring. Students will be encouraged to complete the course in their first year and will be required to complete it by the end of the sophomore year. Transfer students will be required to complete it within two semesters of matriculation.

Faculty, staff, and graduate students will also be encouraged to take this course.
