Improving Racial Equity at Pitt

Pitt's Commitment Is Clear

Pitt, like all great universities, tackles great challenges. Transforming our campus systems and structures to fully support the success of Black students, faculty and staff is a start—one that will require years of internal examination, active conversations and conscious change.

Moving forward, we must tirelessly recognize and address racist attitudes, behaviors and policies. We must take a closer look at every area within our university—including how we approach teaching, research, financial decisions, policing, recruiting, hiring and contracting.
