About Us

The initial planning meeting of the UD Anti-racism Initiative (UDARI) on Aug. 26, 2020, drew 150 people who subsequently formed the steering committee and subcommittees. The initiative has grown to well over 350 individuals: faculty, staff, students and community members. To register your interest in getting involved with the initiative, please complete the UDARI Interest form.

Co-Chairs

The initiative is co-chaired by Lynnette Overby, Professor of Theatre, and Director of the Community Engagement Initiative, Alison Parker, History Department Chair and  Richards Professor of American History, and  KC Morrison, Professor in the Biden School of Public Policy and Administration.
