We at the University Counseling Center are deeply saddened and angered about the racism and pain our Black/African American and other minority communities have experienced for centuries and that have, once again, come to the fore in tragic ways these past couple of months. The outrage sparked by the death of George Floyd is a communal reaction to people collectively bearing witness to just the latest egregious example of injustice that has long been condoned, ignored, and dismissed. We stand in solidarity with Black/African Americans and all people of color, who have endured systemic and pervasive racial injustice on a daily basis throughout the history of our country.

This is a challenging time for all of us. We’re all likely experiencing some emotional discomfort given the spread of COVID-19 and the disruption to our normal routines. Grief at losing out on experiences, frustration, fear, and uncertainty are all normal reactions at this time. Furthermore, the University’s response to the pandemic and our move to remote learning represents a major change for us all.
