About the Davidson Microaggressions Project

The Davidson Microaggressions Project website was developed in 2017 and builds on the work of the Davidson students who created the page and the Outsider Monologues. The Project defines microaggressions as "derogatory (non)verbal, behavioral, and environmental messages and experiences by members of marginalized groups."

In their Statement of Purpose, the Davidson Microaggressions Project website states the initiative aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • "Raise awareness about campus climate as experienced by diverse members of the College community."
  • "Demonstrate how microaggressions manifest around campus and the broader communities in which we live and work."
  • "Define and describe microaggressions and provide a space for resources and additional information on relevant topics."

Davidson College students and faculty work together to maintain and update the Davison Microaggressions Project website
