What is Transformation at CIIS?

Transformation at CIIS is an ongoing commitment to anti-racist and anti-oppression work at the institute. This work is shared by all and guided by The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Together, we are intentionally and strategically moving CIIS toward systemic change that will address structural and individual racism, oppression, inequities, and white supremacy culture. This work represents the natural progression of a truly integral ethos.

We stand together in this effort, and the division enjoys the full support of the administration. To that end, we will work together to ensure that we are doing everything we can to become a truly inclusive, equitable, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive institution.

This page will highlight upcoming anti-racist and anti-oppression conversations that reflect our shared commitment to transformation. If you have any comments or want to collaborate with us, please email us at transformation@ciis.edu or reach out to drobertson@ciis.edu.

The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion's Assistant Director, Damali Robertson, will be beginning these transformative conversations with members of our community in Spring 2022.
