Committed to Action

When members of our 51׻ family raised concerns about racism and racial inequities on our campuses, the University pledged to act with more focus and intention. Change requires sustained work. That's why we’re asking for your help to identify new and existing initiatives, as well as to suggest ways we can create a safe, diverse and welcoming community for all.
