Brownsville Hall Ribbon Cutting and Racial Healing Program

Apr 4, 2022 1:00 PM

This is a reminder to please join us at 6:00 for the ribbon cutting ceremony this evening at the Brownsville Residential Hall. Following the ceremony, we will meet in CCIT 397 at 6:30 p.m. for a racial healing program, a campus conversation to bring campus and community members together.

What is Racial Healing?

Racial healing is a process that restores individuals and communities to wholeness, repairs the damage caused by racism and transforms societal structures into ones that affirm the inherent value of all people. It makes it possible to acknowledge and speak the truth about past wrongs created by individual and systemic racism and to address present-day consequences for people, communities, and institutions.

Racial healing can facilitate trust and build authentic relationships that bridge divides created by real and perceived differences. We believe it is essential to pursue racial healing prior to making change in a community. Because, before you can transform systems and structures, you must start with people first.

Coming off a full weekend of DEI training that brought faculty, staff, and students together for some phenomenal sharing that resulted in increased awareness and understanding for all, we want to maintain the momentum as we continue to build an inclusive, welcoming campus environment throughout this week.

We hope to see you there!
