Response to the Derek Chauvin Trial Verdict
Dear Kinesiology community,
The ongoing and escalating racial violence that has marred our county is exhausting and rife with an array of emotions. Today has offered us a measure of justice with the guilty verdicts in the George Floyd murder trial. We stand against racism, and we are striving to make our school a place that promotes racial justice and celebrates racial inclusivity. We must continue to support each other in this process and use our respective platforms (as faculty, staff, and students) to promote positive change.
We share the sentiments conveyed in President Schlissel's message. We encourage you to explore the various sources of support listed.
In peace and solidarity,
Ketra Armstrong, Professor and Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Lori Ploutz-Snyder, Professor and Dean
