NYU’s commitment to building and strengthening a university-wide culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity led to the creation of the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation. As part of the Office of the President, the Office of Global Inclusion provides expert consultation, resources, and innovative strategies to help guide the University—and its uniquely global and diverse student, faculty, staff, administration, and alumni communities—toward a more inclusive future.

Statement Regarding Derek Chauvin Trial Verdict with Guidance and Resources (4/16/2021—Updated 4/21/2021)

Dear Community Members,

The trial of Derek Chauvin for murdering George Floyd coupled with additional recent murders of people of African descent and other hate and violence against Black and Indigenous people and people of color named or not in the media; disparities impacting intersecting marginalized groups; mass shootings; and the related barrage of media coverage—further deepen what many of us have already been feeling and experiencing—our communities are exhausted.

Beyond the ongoing challenges that COVID presents globally, there are unceasing, relentless, daily, persistent, pervasive acts of racism, xenophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism, and many other -isms that continue to impact historically marginalized communities. The various forms of rampant racist violence, bias, and injustice against Black, Indigenous, Asian, and Latinx communities, the rise of transphobic policies across the country, voter suppression, and other acts of systemic and systematic marginalization against certain groups of peoples and communities are simply unacceptable.

Regardless of yesterday's guilty verdicts in the Chauvin trial and his upcoming sentencing for murdering George Floyd and the pursuit of justice being sought in Daunte Wright’s killing and those of so many other people, and recognizing the grand jury decision not to charge the police officers who killed Breonna Taylor, the mass murder of eight people in Atlanta including six Asian women, and on and on—we know this violence and systematic and systemized oppression, unfortunately, continues to persist. We know there are many people and communities that have been impacted and subjected to assaults, violence, bias, and hate, and while some of this has been publicly acknowledged, frankly and unfortunately, there are many other instances that have gone unaddressed and unacknowledged. The Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation (OGI) acknowledges the communal pain, the anger, the enervation, and sadness across the aforementioned communities, and our team continues to engage efforts (including resources, guidance, and programmatic spaces) that center historically marginalized communities in all of our work.
