Anti-Oppression Resources for UNLV Students: Introduction to this Guide

For UNLV students, or friends or family who want to help.

About this guide

With a focus on student safety and well-being, this guide is designed to provide general information and links to resources about anti-oppression and related topics such as diversity, inclusion, and social justice for the UNLV academic community. Intended to be non-partisan, many resources offered here are for everyone regardless of political affiliation or viewpoint. In some cases, resources and links related to issues and specific policies proposed by elected officials are part of this guide as these issues and proposed policies directly impact professional and personal lives of members of our community, such as immigrants or people of color. 

We would like to offer our appreciation to the following individuals and other valued colleagues who contributed to the development of this guide.

Christine Clark, Professor, Teaching & Learning

Brittany Fiedler, Teaching & Learning Librarian 

Mariana Sarmiento Hernández

Sue Wainscott, Engineering Librarian

This guide seeks to serve as a starting point and is not meant to be exhaustive. It is our goal to continue its development in response to evolving needs of the community. We welcome suggestions from all members of the UNLV academic community.

If you have feedback about this guide or would like to suggest additional resources, please contact Sue Wainscott, Engineering Librarian

This guide is intended to be a resource for students of marginalized identities and students who seek to be allies for different communities of people whose identities are marginalized. This guide is intended to combat racism and xenophobia and all other forms of oppression that students may experience, through providing links to web resources and library resources, as well as language that can be used to engage in thoughtful dialogue about such issues, where each party is respected.
