I believe I forgot to share this on the 23rd when we posted on social media

A Statement of Support and Encouragement from the Faculty in the KU Department of Political Science

            It is clear that there are ongoing ethnic and racial disparities in the U.S. The halls of higher education are not immune from inequality and disrespect based on race, ethnicity, and other forms of difference.

            We are encouraged by the willingness of KU students, staff and faculty to speak out on these issues. At the same time we are also saddened by the realization that some on the KU campus do not feel welcome, supported, or safe.

            We would like to continue participating in these discussions, especially as they concern fostering civic engagement, respectful discussions, and increasing diversity, inclusiveness, and safety in every venue on the KU campus and for all members of the KU community. Please lean on us in the pursuit of educating ourselves and the broader community as we all continue to learn how to become better democratic citizens.
