Diversity and Democracy


The Source

Created by the nonprofit organization Diversity Works, The Source is an "online sortable database of diversity, anti-oppression, and community-building activities." Users can search for activities of varying lengths and for various audiences, from low elementary school through adult. Topics are organized by "isms" and themes (such as identity, ally work, and privilege), and users can access a wide range of resources fitting pedagogical contexts from icebreakers to teambuilding activities to writing exercises. This free resource is available at thesource.diversityworks.org.

College InSight

The Institute for College Access and Success created College InSight to make data on racial and economic diversity, as well as college cost, more widely available. The database allows users to access information by general topic or by specific school or state, and users can create customized tables and comparisons using preferred inputs. By presenting the data in an attractive and easily accessible form, the Web site makes important indicators of diversity more transparent. Access the database at www.college-insight.org.

Community-Engaged Scholarship for Health

CES4Health.info is a peer-reviewed online database for publications and products focused on health-related community-engaged scholarship. The Web site was created to broaden the possibilities for peer-reviewed publication on these topics. Access to many resources is free, and the database currently includes a particularly strong focus on public health. Visit www.ces4health.info for more information about submitting and accessing resources.
