Antiracism Transformation Team

This website provides information regarding the creation of the Antiracism Transformation Team (ArTT) and the work that this team will carry out.

Why

Columbia College Chicago has made a commitment to advancing our DEI mission by intentionally and collectively working towards becoming an antiracist institution. This path forward acknowledges both the accomplishments of the institution thus far and the ways in which white supremacy and other oppressive systems continue to affect institutional culture and structure.

The Mandate

The Antiracism Transformation Team (ArTT) is tasked with leading antiracism efforts on campus. This charge includes but is not limited to: the equitable redistribution of institutional power, establishing clear accountability protocols, recommending financial priorities, and equitable support of various constituents across the college.

By What Authority

Acting on the authority of our community and reporting to the President, the ArTT works to eradicate racism and oppression at Columbia College Chicago through radical collaboration. This team is inclusive of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and board of trustee members, with intentional ties to the Chicago community, to which we hold ourselves accountable.
