NYU Alumni & Friends Connect June 2020
June 15, 2020
Dear alumni community,
In light of the recent wave of activism and Black Lives Matter protests in the US and around the world, we’d like to share the following University updates on NYU’s continued diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts:
- In the wake of George Floyd’s death, President Hamilton addressed the NYU community to condemn racism, bigotry, and hatred.
- NYU’s Chief Diversity Officer, Lisa Coleman, outlined NYU’s important work to address anti-Black racism and ensure equity for all community members.
- The Office of Global Inclusion (OGI) compiled an anti-racism education resource list (PDF: 114 KB, link opens in new tab)—including articles, books, guides, and podcasts.
- And NYU alumni were invited to join Blackness, Racism & Protest: Reflections on the Past, Present & Future, a panel discussion on anti-Black racism in the US and globally.
