George Floyd’s death, as well as continued acts of violence and loss of life, have been traumatic for many.

Yesterday, Provost Latha Ramchand and I shared resources for reporting acts of discrimination and harassment, as well as providing support to our students who are feeling stress.

We will host an in-person opportunity for our students, faculty and staff to participate in a Tiger Support session on Friday, April 23 at 3 p.m. in Jesse Auditorium. Provost Ramchand and other leaders representing areas of support services will join me at this session.

It is our duty — each one of us individually and collectively — to do the work of inclusive excellence here at Mizzou and around the country and world. I hope to see many of you this Friday.

Please let us know if you can attend by writing us at so that we can ensure social distancing. If you can’t join us in person, we also welcome your comments and suggestions to the same email.
