Anti-Racism Urgent Action Committee

The University of Illinois College of Medicine has established the Anti-Racism Urgent Action Committee.

The committee’s charge is to use the next two to three months to establish an immediate action plan for mitigating the impacts of racism and/or reducing systemic inequities facing people of color by focusing on two types of urgent actions:

  • Immediate changes in policies, processes, or training that will ensure short-term change
  • Immediate change to college-wide goals and metrics that will enable necessary medium and long-term change

The initial focus areas are:

  1. Medical School Curriculum
  2. Student Learning Environment
  3. Resident Recruitment and Concerns
  4. Student/Faculty /Staff Recruitment & Retention
  5. Faculty/Staff Development
  6. Faculty/Staff Environment
  7. External Impact
