COB Commitment to Social Justice, Diversity, and Inclusion
Tuesday, June 2 2020 02:00pm
Students, alumni, faculty, and staff:
One week ago, our country was shocked and saddened by a form of violence that has shaken our community to its core. For some, this form of violence and grieving is not new, dating back several generations and decades. For others, this last week has been an eye-opening experience. Through it all, the College of Business (COB) community continues to be dedicated to assist, support, and listen to you.
Recently, you may have received a message from various Ohio University diversity officers specifying the University’s commitment to social justice. The COB is supportive of the University’s position on social justice and we encourage all business students, alumni, staff, and faculty to use their voice in a productive manner. Additionally, we are committed to providing and supporting an academic community that supports social justice in all forms including equal rights, equal opportunity, and equal treatment for all.
We would also like to reiterate that various trained and certified university staff and administrators are here to support you via the many different University multicultural centers, counseling departments, and community offices. Support can also be found within the college by our own diversity officer (Sly Mata, Assistant Director of Diversity & Inclusion) who may be able to direct or connect you to various resources within the University and broader communities.
During these challenging times, we are here to support each other.
