A Message on the Social Injustice in our Nation

At IU, we denounce all forms of bigotry, hate, and racism. We believe strongly in a society that values the respect and dignity of life for all. Moreover, we feel adamant that the opportunity to live and work in a world that builds upon the contributions of everyone is not just a privilege but a right of life. Read powerful statements issued by President Michael A. McRobbie, Vice President and Dean James C. Wimbush, the Indiana University Black Philanthropy Circle, and the Indiana University Queer Philanthropy Circle denouncing racism and violence, and condemning “those who seek to divide us based on race, ethnicity, national origin, and other areas.”
