Dear Miami Community,
I am saddened and frustrated today. Once again, we are facing words and symbols of hate and intolerance, directed against members of our own community. While we cannot dictate what people can think or what they can say, we can rise up as a community and say clearly that we stand against hate, against intolerance, against bigotry.
I want you to know three things:
- We have students on campus who don’t feel welcome, and that breaks my heart.
- This is not a challenge I can solve alone. We all must play an active role in creating the kind of community where every person feels welcome.
- I am committed to doing the hard work necessary, for as long as it takes, to create an inclusive and welcoming community at Miami.
