    Who We Are

    Empowered by the University President, the Anti-Racism and Equity Coalition is a team of dedicated Barry University faculty, staff, and student representatives working to achieve an anti-racist, equitable, and inclusive community.

    Our Vision

    In the spirit of the Barry mission and Core Commitments, we aspire to create an educational community that honors diversity, is free from racism, and actively engages in building a better world through learning, teaching, research, and self-reflection.

Our Pledge to You

We unequivocally believe in racial justice and social equity. Though our focused attention is on race as an equity imperative, our work includes the interests of other groups and individuals that have experienced marginalization and discrimination.

We believe every human being has a right to be treated with respect and dignity and that the value of every student, faculty, staff, and administrator must be equally recognized and honored. 

Hence, the Coalition envisions a healthy space for the Barry community to unleash its individual and collective power to address issues of structural inequity and help build an inclusive community where we can all thrive.

The Coalition will therefore advocate for positive change and, within a social justice framework, do the work with courage and vulnerability. We pledge to:
