We are a grassroots community interested in identifying and understanding issues of inequity in academia. We as faculty/staff/students and the academic system as a whole are the object of inquiry. Beginning with personal development in a shared space of respect, our members are learning techniques and developing strategies to transform ourselves and provide more equitable experiences in classrooms and throughout the University.

We are open to all colleagues and students at Purdue. Feel free to join our mailing list by contacting Aletha Stahl at and come to any or all of our meetings.
