UCI LEADERSHIP | In Support of the African American Community ♥ ★ ✚

Dear UCI Community: We watched with shock and horror the video of a white policeman callously, even casually, kneeling on the neck of an unarmed and unresisting black man until that man was dead, while other policemen stood by and watched.  This brutal and racist act was like something out of Mississippi during Jim Crow, out of the past we don’t acknowledge enough, but it wasn’t.  It is our reality, in the here and now, a reality that reflects the harsh, brutal, terrible, ongoing legacy of America’s original sin. We empathize with the pain, sadness, and anger that many Black…

GRADUATE DIVISION | A Message for the DECADE Community on Behalf of Graduate Dean Gillian Hayes ♥★✚

Dear DECADE mentors and DECADE student community, I am writing to  you today with a heavy heart and a humble request for your help in supporting our many students, post-docs, faculty, and staff who are struggling right now.

Strengthening UCI’s Community: Observance of LGBTQ+ Month in June

In celebration of the upcoming Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning (LGBTQ+) Pride Month in June, I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our diverse LGBTQ+ community and recommit ourselves to advancing inclusive excellence for all members of the UCI community. This year is especially significant because it coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village, New York, which began on June 28, 1969, as a series of spontaneous uprisings near Christopher Street and led by gay residents and patrons of the Stonewall Inn. While a police raid was the immediate cause, the…
