  • Like many of you will probably soon be doing, I recently started a new position in the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We acknowledge that these tragedies reflect long-standing racial injustice within our nation. We also recognize that our Black colleagues are exhausted and scared, and need space to grieve. Finally, we know that privilege and oppression exist everywhere - in our communities, on our campuses, and amongst our profession.
