Universities Studying Slavery: Meredith College

Meredith College Front Drive

In 2020, Meredith College launched a college-wide anti-racism initiative.  This initiative is on-going and includes all members of the Meredith community.   While Meredith College works to foster a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment, President Jo Allen highlighted the importance of understanding the college's history.   To better facilitate this process, Meredith College joined Universities Studying Slavery (U.S.S.) in June 2020.   U.S.S. is a consortium of institutions collaborating and sharing guidelines and best practices for researching institutional histories, the impact of slavery and issues of racism.  More on Universities Studying Slavery
