Resources for Faculty of Color

This guide includes resources for faculty of color at the University of North Texas. It was compiled by the UNT Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of People of Color.

Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of People of Color

The UNT Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of People of Color was formed in order to identify issues of interest to people of color at UNT, gather information on university policies or practices affecting POC, and to keep faculty informed of university, state, or federal laws & regulations regarding civil rights, equal employment, or diversity issues. The committee may submit recommendations for further action to the Faculty Senate

The resources collected in this guide may be of use to all UNT community members, but particularly to those who may not be aware of all the services available to meet the particular needs and challenges of people of color at the university.  

If you know of other resources or links that might be included on this guide, please contact the subject librarian indicated in the profile box at the bottom left corner of this page.
