You, Me, Racism, & Community

UConn Hartford continues to bear witness to the systemic violence against Black, Brown, and Indigenous bodies and communities. To create an antiracist community that is just, equitable, and inclusive, we must center the voices and experiences of those who are suffering from fear, bigotry, and all forms of systemic oppression. UConn Hartford will continue to ensure the safety, protection, and advancement of all our students, staff, and faculty, but we must do more for our Black peers and colleagues. In November we had a critical conversation with student leaders, staff, and administrators about our individual and collective roles in realizing an anti-racist community. Read [here] a record of that conversation and its recommendations, which we continue to make progress on.
