Understanding and Addressing Microaggressions


This toolkit provides a foundational understanding of microaggressions and how to combat them.

Microaggressions don’t necessarily reflect bad intent but can still be very damaging. Therefore, it is important to proactively identify and address microaggressions within your department and your institution before they become a problem. Learning to properly spot and address these statements can improve your campus climate while reducing absenteeism, turnover, and employee complaints.
