Embracing Diversity

It is essential that Resiliency Projects reflect the diversity of the student body and address issues of concern to all student populations. At the very least, this means that Black, Indigenous, people of color (BIPOC) see themselves represented in the resources, photographs, and concerns detailed on the website. It also means that multi-media material should show a diverse cast of characters. When colleges are launching their websites, we recommend that students, who are the “end-users” of the resource, should be surveyed, included in focus groups, review, and provide feedback on representation and content issues before the launch to make sure that resources in the Reach Out Section are included for everyone. Don’t forget to list student groups and affinity groups that exist on campus or in the community.
