The Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Center is proud to provide several resources for the Southwestern University community to help support students that are historically underrepresented and for the entire campus community. More information and details are provided below about each resource.
Through the efforts of a campaign led by students in SU Planned Piratehood, SU Fed Up, and the JEDI Center, All Gender restrooms were established on campus in 2015. A map indicating the locations of these restrooms can be found below.

HALO Student Guide
The Hispanic and Latinx Organization (HALO) has created an amazing zine packed with useful information. The project is intended to provide a convenient, efficient resource for especially BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) first-year and first-generation students.
The mission of the peer-to-peer mentoring program is to assist first-year, historically underrepresented students (i.e. domestic ethnic minorities, LGBTQIA+ students, and students with disabilities) in their transition to Southwestern and surrounding communities.
The JEDI center hosts several workshops throughout the year and upon request. These workshops are designed to educate students about various aspects of social justice and diversity.
