From the Dean
June 12, 2020
Dear College of Science Community,
In the wake of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others, the country continues to respond to racial injustice and the oppressive systems that enable it. To be clear, the College of Science stands in solidarity with the Black community, and supports the University in its efforts to address pervasive racism.
In recent days, I have heard from many of you about actionable ideas to advocate for equity for all. Effective action requires sustained dialog, and I will continue to listen to your ideas, as I formulate plans of action with your department chairs. I am committed to working with all of you to implement and sustain meaningful change toward a better, more equitable future.
