The Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill is committed to changing the pathways, practices, and systems of academia to be more accessible and inclusive of diverse voices. In support of these goals, this website serves as a repository of resources to support labs, researchers, clinicians, teachers, and mentors in creating more inclusive environments in the areas in which they work and spaces where they may have influence.

The intention of this site is to serve as a resource that grows and adapts to the needs of the faculty, staff, and students of the Psychology & Neuroscience department and University. The launch of the site focuses on resources related primarily to anti-racism efforts, although these resources also broadly apply to other issues of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. Future updates will add to these anti-racism resources, as well as broaden the scope of resources addressing additional specific JEDI topics.

This is a living website and thus we welcome and encourage individuals to submit resources of their own or request resources/topics that they do not see reflected in the current website.
Submit topics and/or resources here.
