Dear students, faculty, and staff:
The reports of racism we have heard this week in the news is incomprehensible. There have been many recent egregious events, with the unsettling incident that Christian Cooper had to face, and the appalling death of George Floyd representing just two versions of racism that African Americans face every day in the United States. As the School aspires to be a diverse and inclusive community of people where all are appreciated for who they are, and to develop principled leaders that are primed and positioned to solve real-world problems and care for the world, we will and must do our part. I know many of you are hurting and many are looking for ways to help. Please join us in reaching out to comfort your colleagues and peers that may need support.
Please know that my commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence for this School is unwavering. If you are feeling disenfranchised by these events, I want to ensure that you have the support you need. For professional and graduate students who may find it helpful to talk or to learn more about both University and School resources available to you, please contact Brad Wingo (email@example.com) in the Office of Curricular and Student Affairs. Faculty and staff may contact Carla White (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Office of Organizational Diversity and Inclusion.
As always, my virtual door is also open to you. Please reach out, and know that we remain together while apart.
All my best,
