Along with President Stanley, the College of Natural Science stands by our Black faculty, staff, and students. We collectively feel pain and horror about the murders of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky, and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. We acknowledge the centuries-long impact of racism on the Black community and the harsh environments that faculty members of color, staff of color and students of color endure. The NatSci community understands that it must work purposefully and intentionally to undo the negative impacts on communities of color, while initiating inclusive and equitable strategies to improve representation, advancement and research in science. We can and must do more.
