Racism is a community trauma and public health crisis that dehumanizes and prevents personal wellbeing. At Student Wellness and Health Promotion, we strive to interrupt the normalization of whiteness and to examine and adapt our own practices to better treat everyone with dignity, respect, love, caring and warmth. We commit to powerful and positive change through purposeful action by removing barriers to wellbeing, supporting the unique needs of students, and honoring their differences. Holding ourselves accountable for interrupting racism and other inequities in all their forms, we aim to move the University of Delaware and ourselves towards a more just and equitable community.
