Diversifying and Decolonizing the Syllabi in Life and Environmental Sciences

Access the reading list

The objective of this project is to develop a list of college-level resources (articles, podcasts, videos, etc) that can be used as teaching tools in undergraduate classrooms. These resources may cover topics of racial justice, traditional ecological knowledge, environmental racism, and other related topics. We also seek to recognize both historical and current contributions of BIPOC to science through increased representation in syllabi. We also will provide resources to support instructors who seek to include any of these ideas topics in their classrooms. 

We have compiled a google spreadsheet with resources and recommend incorporating these resources to highlight BIPOC contributions and voices. Topics covered include: conservation biology; environmental social sciences; genetics; human health; invasive species; landscape ecology; restoration ecology; taxonomy; traditional ecological knowledge; and urban ecology.
