At Interlochen, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging work (DEIB) seeks to help community members navigate differences and similarities so that everyone can realize their potential.
Please check out our new DEIB Resource site in partnership with The Bonisteel Library and the DEIB Student Voice Team. Please note that the first pillar of doing DEIB work is Education. It is important we, as a group, work to educate ourselves so we can continue to create an inclusive community. Suggestions welcome!
Lastly, it is vital to realize the complexity and intersectionality of our community, so please dive into all sections. Below is a list of issues we will address in this Research Guide:
In an effort at full disclosure, it should be noted that the collaborators in this guide occupy some of the oppressed identities outlined here but not all. We have attempted to bring together quality, relevant resources for the anti-oppression issues in this guide. Still, we are not immune from the limits and hidden biases of our privileges and perspectives as allies.
We welcome any feedback and suggestions for the guide, particularly from the perspectives and experiences of the marginalized groups listed and not listed here.
