About this Guide

This guide is a starting point for members of the campus community to learn more about the issues of diversity and inclusion.  Included are a variety of educational resources ranging from popular culture to scholarly publications.

The guide focuses on racial issues on campus, as well as throughout the country and in the media. Resources are also provided that allow you to search and explore additional information about these topics as well as other forms of diversity and inclusion.  

The resources in this guide focus on racial diversity, but resources are also available for learning about other forms of diversity.  Please consult the LGBTQ Research Guide, The Office of Diversity & Inclusion, or ask a librarian if you are looking for more information.

We hope that the resources on this guide will help the members of the Gettysburg College Community become more aware of issues related to diversity and encourage them to take action.
