Diversity, Inclusion & Access

A Message from SAIL

Hello,

I want to take a minute to acknowledge what is currently happening in our country and the sadness, anger, confusion, and loss we feel after the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many other people of color, specifically Black people, who have been victims of police brutality. These events are not isolated, and it is important to recognize the impact it has on our community and the part we each play in creating change.

The videos and images we have seen over the last week have been devastating. It is important you digest and process those on your time and in whatever way you need, but we are here to offer support and conversation should you need it. Most importantly, the Office of SAIL is committed to actively disrupting racism within our own communities, which will only come through education, conversation, and a willingness to listen and change. We ask you to join us in this cause.

All members of our community, particularly those in minorities communities, should feel safe and welcome on our campus and in our community, and we will not tolerate hate.

As always, we are here for you. Please reach out if you need support.

Sincerely,

Kelsi Streich, Director of SAIL
