Educating ourselves about the roles that the University and our disciplines have played, and continue to play, in creating and reinforcing systemic and particular injustice in our societies.
Working to reduce and remove sources and practices of injustice in our policies, procedures, bureaucracies, structures, committees, and systems.
Using our positions as educators and researchers, to seek to present religion and ancient cultures in decolonized, inclusive, and just ways, attentive to plurality of perspectives, complex intersections of oppression, and respectful listening to the voices and histories of those with whom we engage in scholarship. We will revise and renew our curricula to reflect these commitments.
Helping provide academic resources and support for communities subject to systemic and other forms of injustice, and education of those in positions of privilege.
Continually critiquing, adjusting, and improving our published, online, and in-person public presence, toward the goal of increasing the variety and number of voices, perspectives, histories, and peoples with whom we engage.
Decolonizing, informing, and revising our research, theories, and methods to both acknowledge the ways that our disciplines have been shaped by and reinforce unjust power structures, and incorporate and/or respectfully acknowledge research, perspectives, and knowledge produced by equity-deserving groups.
