The University of Maine Social Justice: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Collection is a curated collection of items compiled by Raymond H. Fogler Library's Special Collections' staff as part of a project to to create an archive of primary sources by, from, and about the diverse University of Maine community and social justice issues at the University of Maine and in the greater Bangor region. The Collection was created in response to the increased social awareness of racial justice issues in the United States following the death of George Floyd in the spring and summer of 2020.

The resources include newsletters, theses, videos of presentations and events, interviews, articles, posters, webpages, correspondence, and reports from University of Maine administrators, departments, student groups, and individual faculty, staff, students, and alumnus. The material includes born digital items captured from the web and scans of analog items from records held in the University of Maine Archive.

Please contact University Archivist Matthew Revitt (matthew.revitt@maine.edu) if you have content you would like to submit to the collection.
