In a message to campus on June 9, 2020 Montse Fuentes, Executive Vice President and Provost wrote:
" #ShutDownAcademia/#ShutDownSTEM/#Strike4BlackLives is a movement that is asking all members of the global academic community to stop doing “business as usual” on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, and to dedicate the day to educating ourselves about racism—especially in higher education—and to make a commitment to action and healing. I want to encourage each of you to participate."
The department recognizes our call to be "leaders of change" and encourages our community to focus on education, action, and healing on June 10, 2020.
