Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive campus is stronger than ever. We denounce racism, hate, institutionalized violence, and especially anti-Blackness. We acknowledge the power of white privilege and recommit to creating a culture of mutual respect, understanding and support for all who face historical and present-day oppression.
