Solidarity and Support for all members of CEGE Community
We are all in this together!
CEGE embraces contributions of students and scholars of all nationalities, creeds, and cultures. We fundamentally believe that diversity in all forms makes us stronger. A recent rise in anti-Asian and anti-Asian American racism in connection with COVID-19 is concerning, and we want to send a strong message of solidarity and support to all members of our community who are experiencing racism or xenophobia (definition: fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign).
If you experience or witness a bias or hate, here are some resources to help:
- Report on-campus incidents to the Bias Response and Referral Network (BRRN)
- Read the Asian American Studies Statement COVID-19 and Campus Climate
- See Tips for Responding to Bias, Harrassment and/or Discrimination from International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS)
Currently, graduate students in CEGE represent eight different countries; undergraduates and faculty members represent several more.
