The Commission on Institutional Change

Commission on Institutional Change Collaboratory October 2018

Welcome to the Institutional Change resource center. Within these pages, you will find the gifts shared by Unitarian Universalists that support the long-term cultural and institutional change that redeems the essential promise and ideals of Unitarian Universalism.

At the New Orleans General Assembly in 2017, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) Commission on Institutional Change was established and charged by the UUA Board of Trustees to conduct an audit of white privilege and the structure of power within Unitarian Universalism, and analyze structural racism and white supremacy culture within the UUA. The Commission was in place for three years through the Virtual General Assembly in June of 2020.

Over the three years, the Commission on Institutional Change shared regular communications through the Institutional Change Blog and various social media platforms. The Commission has curated discussion guides, videos, and presentations for congregations, fellowships, covenant circles, and other forms of community to engage in the work of institutional change. These resources are substantial materials to support the final work of the Commission, Widening the Circle of Concern: Report of the UUA Commission on Institutional  Change, presented to the Board of Trustees and General Assembly in June 2020.
