Dear AU Community,

The Graduate Leadership Council (GLC) condemns racism, racial injustice and racial inequality in all forms. The events taking place this summer in response to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Tony McDade highlight the systematic racism that exists within our nation. As AU community leaders, we are committed to changing this on our campus and beyond.  

The GLC are planning to introduce a series of events to educate and inform the AU community about racism in the hopes of creating an open dialogue and discussion. If you feel you have been the victim of racism or any type of prejudice on campus, we have provided information on support resources below. If you see something, say something. 

American University has a long tradition of inclusivity and diversity. We are devoted to this tradition and creating a safe community for all. 

With respect,

Graduate Leadership Council
