Language & Terminology
The Allyship & Anti-Oppression Resource Guide was launched in November 2013. It was initially developed in response to requests from students, faculty, and staff to clarify terminology used in campus discussions around diversity and inclusion. The guide continues to be developed through a collaboration among students, staff, and faculty, providing a starting point for exploring issues of allyship, anti-oppression work, and social justice.
Please access the guide, last updated in 2019, below, along with other resources related to language and terminology.
Check out the Anti-Oppression Resource & Training Alliance (AORTA) resource page, which includes a guide to creating anti-oppressive workplaces, how to navigate conflict in movement organizations, and more.
