DEI Resources for Faculty

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Law School Curriculum

"The one thing that is absolutely certain about the American experience is that never in our history as a people have any of us, black or white, been “neutral” on the matter of race. It has been, and remains, the great overriding issue throughout all our history, in all our law, in all our institutions."
~Norman C. Amaker, The Haunting Presence of the Opinion in Brown v. Board of Education, 20 S. Ill. U.L.J. 3, 6–7 (1995)
