Statement of Solidarity with the Black Community: We Stand for Equity and Justice.

June 01, 2020

I am writing to express what I am sure are shared sentiments: pain and anger at George Floyd’s senseless killing and at systemic inequity and injustice that have gone on for too long.

Our work is to improve the human condition and create a better world. That work and that world begin in our own community, through cultivating equity, seeing and addressing prejudice, listening to and speaking up for one another, and continuing to work together to create justice and opportunities for all people.

The College of Sciences stands firmly as your ally. Please keep talking, listening and advocating with us. Please keep your eyes, hands, hearts, and minds trained on this work and this fragile world of ours. We are all needed to strengthen our shared humanity.

— Susan Lozier, Dean and Betsy Middleton and John Clark Sutherland Chair
