BFS-ERG Statement Regarding the On-Campus Hate Crime

To the Black Faculty and Staff University Community:


By now you may have heard about the horrific act of intimidation that took place on September 8th on the lawn.

As an executive board we share in your disgust, questions of safety, and concerns on where we go from here. As we work as a Board on more detailed communication and action, we write today to remind us all:


We are here.


Despite this and other attempts to make us feel small: we are here.

Showing up to work in the face of a community divided: we are here.

When the grief of continued oppression mounts: we are here


Lean on each other. Love each other. Hold each other. The BFS-ERG remains a space for you.


Please return to our website for updated information on how we will move forward together.


In solidarity,

Blake Jimenéz-Calhoun

Incoming President, Black Faculty and Staff Employee Resource Group
