The University of Illinois Call to Action to Address Racism & Social Injustice is a commitment by our university to put the need to address systemic racism and generationally embedded racial disparity into concrete action to find new solutions. Announced by Chancellor Robert J. Jones in July 2020, the Call to Action includes an $2 million annual commitment designed to quickly and permanently transform the way our own university supports, prioritizes and recognizes the research of scholars working on issues of systemic racism in the United States. Chancellor Jones has also charged a steering committee and four working groups to identify the work that we must commit to now, in order to create a campus that is free of structural and systemic racism and bias.
The Call to Action to Address Racism & Social Injustice at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is administrative supported by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
