Clarification on Recent OIE Communication

October 28, 2020

Dear Faculty and Staff:

A communication from our Office of Institutional Equity raised a number of questions and concerns. Let me assure you that any work on equity, diversity, inclusion, unconscious bias, multi-cultural sensitivity training and our initiative on Eradicating Systemic Racism and Promoting Social Justice will continue uninterrupted. I am confident in our ability to continue these critical efforts and adhere to appropriate federal/state laws and all applicable University policies, while embracing a firm commitment to our core values.
