Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach
DECO hosts events throughout the year that serve as spaces for students, faculty, and staff to learn about and advocate for racial equity.
True to its Jesuit mission, USF is working to create a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive community. The initiatives and resources below are just part of what we are doing to advance anti-racism in our own university, in our neighborhoods, and in our world.
As we grapple with racist events that tear at the fabric of our society, USF returns to its core mission and values: working for social justice, valuing the dignity and worth of all people, and educating students who will change the world from here.
The Go USF Wellness program includes a Racial Equity Challenge. This opportunity to learn, reflect, and take action for racial justice is sponsored by the GoUSF Racial Equity Committee, the Office of Diversity Engagement and Community Outreach (DECO), and the Institute for Nonviolence and Social Justice.
