Black Lives Matter

We at the Division of Global Engagement are committed to providing our students with the best means possible to be informed and thoughtful global citizens no matter where they are in the world. To ignore the injustices that are plaguing the Black community in our country would be a disservice to the students, faculty, and organizations that we work so diligently to support. In a time of so much unrest, it is our duty to stand in solidarity with those who are being greatly impacted.

George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Ahmaud Arbery. Tony McDade. Tamir Rice. Atatiana Jefferson. Trayvon Martin. Eric Garner. Sandra Bland. Michael Brown.

The list goes on. It’s important to say their names because their names matter, their lives matter.

To the lives lost, the communities hurting, and the names of so many other Black people who have died at the hands of injustice and haven’t made national news headlines, we see you, we hear you, and we stand in support with you. #BlackLivesMatter
