Michigan Tech Stands in Solidarity with Asian and Asian American Communities
On Thursday afternoon the State of Michigan House and Senate passed resolutions “to condemn hate crimes, hateful rhetoric, and hateful acts against Asian Americans and to encourage Michiganders to report hate crimes to the proper authorities.”
I had the opportunity to speak with leaders of our Asian student community this week to express my support. I also want to reiterate to all members of the Michigan Tech community that we are resolute in our commitment to provide a safe and welcoming space where everyone can thrive and feel a true sense of belonging.
As Michigan Tech community members, it is our collective responsibility to take action in establishing this safe and welcoming community by intervening in and reporting instances of hate and discrimination.
