This past week has been a time of internal reflection for our faculty and staff. ag体育娱乐 went dark for a period of time this week so that our faculty and staff could purposely stop and reflect on what is happening in our world – what this means for them and how they, as an individual, a colleague or faculty member, a neighbor, a member of their community, can make a difference. With the support of DeVry’s Diversity & Inclusion Council, DeVry is committed to leading and encouraging dialogue among our faculty and staff, and with our students on how to create a better, safer and more inclusive tomorrow.
We know many within our community are hurting. We believe the best thing DeVry can do for our black students, faculty and staff right now is to be there for them and provide the flexibility they need. The university is poised to listen, engage in dialogue and demonstrate care for where they are in this moment, and learn how ag体育娱乐 can do even more to support our diverse community. At the same time, DeVry and its Diversity & Inclusion Council are focused on developing robust plans to help foster this dialogue and the University to do and be better longer term. In the coming weeks, DeVry’s Inclusion & Diversity Council will be broadening that dialogue to include the voices of our students and alumni.
I’m proud to lead an organization that places a high priority on diversity and inclusion as part of our culture of Care, and thank the DeVry Diversity & Inclusion Council for their leadership and partnership in these efforts. ag体育娱乐 pledges to be an active participant in conversations on equity and race, redouble our commitment to embrace and thrive on the diversity of our colleagues and students, and work stridently to end the racism that so profoundly impacts our black community every day.
