The Diversity Toolkit provides links to publications and electronic resources to institutionalize cultural knowledge and diversity at Georgia Southern. This toolkit was compiled as part of EDI’s ongoing effort to provide a resource to the Georgia Southern community to help manage the many facets of diversity and inclusion.
The Diversity Toolkit is designed to create a meaningful blueprint that includes sustained inquiry, examination of challenges, and meet the needs of colleagues and students as they explore the territory of diversity and inclusion.
