Tyre Nichols


We are all saddened and angered by the latest act of police brutality against an African American, resulting in the murder of Tyre Nichols. Last Friday’s message from Chief Michael Carroll stresses the importance of community and trust, and shares helpful resources right here on campus, including the Black Leadership Opportunity Center and the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We’re including his email (see below) to ensure everyone knows about these options for expressing their concerns and frustrations.

These kinds of horrific events affect all of us. Please take the moments you need to reflect inward or to offer kindness to a coworker. Our humanity and sense of community can help us through troubling times.
