The College of Geosciences does not tolerate bigotry, hatred, or racism. We maintain our commitment to welcome all who seek to make their impact and achieve their goals in a diverse community. The senseless acts of violence that continue to take the lives of Black people affirm the need for all of us to work towards dismantling racism within geosciences and higher education and building an environment of inclusion.
