The Morrison University community supports the movement to raise awareness of inequities and unjust processes, evoke change within systems, and bring about a just climate where persons feel safe and valued.
In addition, the university condemns hate speech directed at and/or regarding all persons on all platforms, especially persons of color, as this does not align with our values. The university encourages expressions of respect, unity, value, and love as we support change for the better, and continue to oppose any spread of racist or fear inducing ideology.
The university has launched an Anti-Racism Initiative. The initiative began on Thursday, June 4, with a virtual Vigil for Racial Justice and Healing, which included words and reflection from Black faculty and staff as well as featured students and other community allies.
As our educational institution continues to learn and heal as one community, Morrison University recognizes and stands unified with the efforts that have already taken place to support the movement of justice. Much more needs to be done and this work will be continuous.
