Hello Everyone,

An opportunity to participate in action on anti-Black racism will take place on September 9 &10the National Scholar’s Strike.

As Dean, I support students and academics in participating by joining in the webinars and conversations. (See side bar.)

Faculty members can choose to participate meaningfully in these events for conversation and learning. Please contact me directly if you have any questions, or if you require additional supports to support this action.
