Dear Black Student Union and Student Body Government:
Gallaudet University recognizes the systemic racism embedded into the Gallaudet experience for many in our community and is taking increased action to eradicate it. Anti-racism work requires both systems transformation and individual change and we are acting on both ends.
This communication will be one of many; anti-racism work happening at Gallaudet has not always been communicated sufficiently to the community and going forward, we will communicate frequently about what is happening to eradicate racism at Gallaudet.
The Black Student Union and the Student Body Government called for change and identified six specific changes designed to address systemic racism. Our institutional actions are identified below.
And, it is not enough. Dismantling racism is a long journey – one that should have clear markers of progress. We will continue engaging, listening, acting, and communicating. This list only states some of the work happening at Gallaudet University and should not be viewed as comprehensive. Our community’s commitment to this work may not negate the pain of what has happened in the past, but it can lead to change and healing.
These actions are just some of the many efforts at Gallaudet to address systemic racism. There is so much more that will be done. Please join us in transforming the many systems of our institution and making Gallaudet a place where all feel safe and that they belong.
