Statement of Solidarity

Dear Students, 
The DRC stands in support of our Black students, colleagues, neighbors, and family members. We are committed to anti-racism and the pursuit of equality, inclusivity, and social justice. We are pained by the centuries of racialized oppression, violence, structural inequality, and trauma enacted on Black communities. We are also heartbroken and angered over the death of George Floyd, among others. 

If you are being affected by the world’s current events, please know that we are here to support you. The university also offers mental health support through Counseling Services. We are with you.
