As a university, we must continue to invest in self-care, education and meaningful dialogue about what it takes to dismantle racism and how to create and sustain a university community where every Huskie feels valued and has the opportunity to thrive. - President Dr. Lisa Freeman
To each of you who carry the weight of racial injustice, I want you to know you are not alone. I carry it too. But your resilience, creativity, determination, and passion embody what it means to be a Huskie.... We need all of you to join us as we dismantle systems and build an anti-racist community where everyone can thrive. - Dr. Vernese Edghill-Walden, Vice-President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer
The movement to end systemic racism has sparked much-needed conversations about a number of issues including, but not limited to, racial inequality, police brutality, social justice, white privilege, mass incarceration, and civil rights. We are committed to making these conversations a priority at NIU Law - Dean Cassandra Hill, College of Law.
