2-19-20 Syracuse University student protests


Dear ESF Community,

On February 17, 2020, Syracuse University students initiated a protest in response to the racial incidents that have occurred on the hill. The protest is ongoing. We understand the issues at hand are serious and of great concern to everyone involved. We trust that everyone will work hard to come to a satisfactory conclusion as quickly as possible. We will continue to monitor the situation.

Students who would like to talk are invited to call ESF Counseling Services at 315-470-4716. Dr. Lizette Rivera, the new Director of Student Inclusion Initiatives (Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equity) is also available to discuss this incident or any other concerns you may have. Dr. Rivera can be reached at lrivera@esf.edu or in 445 Baker Lab. For staff and faculty, support is available through the Employee Assistance Program coordinated by Nan Clark (nfclark@esf.edu, 315-470-6726).

I ask that as a campus community, we remain diligent and responsible to collectively reporting incidents of bias. Anonymous, anti-bias reporting can be done by clicking https://www.esf.edu/ide/bias.htm.
