Department of English Anti-Racism Statement


The Department of English at the University of Utah stands with our students from underrepresented populations, including Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Pacific Islander, Asian/Asian American, LGBTQ+, and students with disabilities.  We believe English classes expand our capacity to imagine the experiences of others and can help us to identify the organizing frameworks that structure racism, but we recognize that textual interpretation is most powerful in tandem with the real work of racial justice. Therefore, we commit to promoting greater equity and inclusion in our teaching, mentorship, hiring, and research practices.  We pledge to be more cognizant of the diverse student experience and to help all of our students plan for the future of their choice.
