In his most recent “Meditations and Musings” column, Chancellor Ronnie Green reflects on a “Convergence of Crises” — the COVID-19 pandemic and killing of George Floyd — and the launch of the university’s Anti-Racism Journey.
“Unfortunately, history shows us that this is not the first time such a journey is needed or warranted, “ Green said. “As I finish penning this message, I just concluded listening to the formative discussions of the Big Ten Anti-Hate and Anti-Racism Coalition. Commissioner Warrant asked me at the end of the call if I had one word to describe how I feel about these efforts — my response was ‘essential.’
“I challenge all of us to commit and to join in this journey as we build a stronger and better future for all. We can only make meaningful and sustained change by all of us working together.”
