Over the past few weeks, our Athletics department has reached out to our student-athletes and we have engaged in open, honest, and difficult dialogue. The courage they displayed when speaking about their experiences and voicing their opinions was nothing short of inspiring. We listened to their pain and felt called to action. Following these conversations on June 3rd a task force of administrators met to discuss further actions in creating a community devoted to ending racism. This task force is currently expanding to include as many perspectives as possible from our student-athletes, administrators, and coaches. Their task is ensuring that our athletics department stays focused on these issues not just for an immediate response, but for years to come.
