Student Support re: Racialized Violence
Violence against Black people continues to plague our country. Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, George Floyd are some of the most recent names on a long list of Black men, women and trans people taken from their families and communities far too soon, not to mention the racial profiling of Christian Cooper. We are outraged, and though this message runs the risk of falling short, we refuse to be silent.
We will continue to engage the University community and support student‐driven initiatives in an attempt to raise critical consciousness. At the moment, our priority is offering support to you – our students – in any way that we can.
We are working with campus partners to host a virtual space for students this week. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out to any member of our team if we can be of assistance. We can also make personal connections to colleagues in other areas. If you're not sure where to start, you can always text us at 773.702.5710.
