Last month, I shared some immediate and longer-term action items for SJSU to address systemic racism. Several actions were identified, including steps we would take immediately as well as a number of longer-term efforts. I write today to report on our progress to date, particularly the actions we have undertaken these past 30 days and thoughts on the future.
Last week, I wrote to you about our immediate and longer-term efforts to address systemic racism at San José State. Among several specific actions we are taking, I indicated that we would create spaces and mechanisms whereby our campus community members can process the often complex issues of racism, listen to one another and seek understanding of the pain that others may be experiencing. I write today to offer an update on the activities that took place this past week.
