Message to Students on Our Commitment to Racial Justice

Over the past few days, many of you have approached us to express your grief and anger at the racial injustices that are occurring around us. Although the violent police murder of George Floyd may have brought it to the forefront, the subsequent death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet and police-shooting death of Chantel Moore bring home the continued reality that systemic racism permeates aspects of our own society and institutions. We grieve alongside you and share your anger at these horrific events.
