Student Body President Nouman Kante
A Message from President Scott Wyatt
I join SUUSA President Nouman Kante in expressing our deepest grief over the death of George Floyd and the multitude of injustices that our friends of color have faced over the course of their lives. Perhaps the greatest resource to combat the evils of hate, prejudice and racism is ourselves -- as we speak out on injustices, seek understanding and show kindness to everyone. At SUU, we pledge to continue teaching and modeling the kind of behavior that leads to a more inclusive and loving world.
