The most recent tragic and disturbing events which started in Minneapolis have affected us all. I would like to reaffirm my position that the Department of Geographical Sciences is committed to racial equality and stands firmly against racism and bigotry. We will continue to work to increase racial and cultural diversity that we all value in our Department. Echoing the recent statements of Dean Ball and President Loh, this is the time to stand up for the values we believe in and strengthen our resolve to provide a supportive and respectful environment for all.
Our College BSOS, will be sponsoring a Town Hall on Policing and Racism on Monday June 8th – all are invited.
