Dear Stanford community,

At the end of June, President Tessier-Lavigne sent a message to the community about some of the efforts the university is taking to advance diversity, inclusion, access and racial justice.

Systemic injustice, and especially anti-Black racism, are essential issues for our country and for our university. At Stanford we believe it is incumbent on us, through our research and teaching, to help make significant and profound improvements towards a more just society. We must also work to ensure that our university is a place where all members of our community are supported and thrive.
