Thank you to everyone who took time out of their days to actively participate in SUNY Oswego’s first annual Equity Habit Building Challenge! Today’s challenge is to take time to reflect on your experience and information retained during the past 21 days. One of the most vital aspects of learning is taking time to reflect or being intentional about processing the lessons taught to you through your experiences.

Curriculum and Instruction’s ongoing social justice blog, Whispering in Sheldon’s Ear offers a wide range of resources.
SUNY Oswego Health Services resource page for transgender students is updated regularly.
Penfield Library’s Anti-Racist Research Guide includes works the library owns in print or is able to provide remote access for as well as online videos, eBooks, and literature highlighting discussions about racism.
