Standing Together with Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and Women in Our Community

We want to echo President Hanlon’s statement condemning the violence in the Atlanta area, which left eight people dead, including seven women, six of whom were of Asian descent. While this tragic event is still being investigated, we do know that throughout the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in violence and racism against Asians and the Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in the United States. We must also recognize that violence against women is a serious ongoing problem in this country.

I’m pleased that Dartmouth supported this fight to protect our students and learning environment.

Geisel’s Juneteenth Town Hall Community Discussion Guide, Next Steps, and WC4BL

We should all consider the following: What would it mean for Geisel to be a national leader in racial fairness, equity, and justice in all of our missions of science and education? How might we get there? We cannot speed to quick fixes aimed to placate that are not long-term solutions, but we can commit, from this point forward, to working towards this vision as a priority for our school.
