We've compiled this list of anti-racism resources to help direct our community to various supports on campus. Note that we do not endorse any specific treatments or products on this page. This list of resources is for information only. 

We recognize the ongoing need to create a campus environment that is respectful and focused on ensuring human rights and dignity for all. In the event that anyone is suffering discrimination or injustice, they may leverage the resources below. It is the diversity of our community at the University of Waterloo that strengthens our school and it is important that all feel supported, seen and heard.

Along with the anti-racism resources on campus and reading lists, we have included a downloadable calendar that focuses on annually observed days of the year focused on social justice and Anti-Racism.

Anti-racism reading lists

Part of combating racial injustice is taking the time to learn about where it stems from, and how it impacts our society.

These lists of resources and information are here to help students, faculty, and staff in our department develop a deeper understanding of issues of racism, anti-Black racism, anti-Indigenous racism and anti-Asian racism; as well as provide tools for campus community members to engage in anti-racism work across campus.

We will continue to update and edit these lists weekly. If you have any recommendations for additional resources, notice any broken links or have other feedback about these lists, please contact us using this feedback form.
