    The #WhiteCoats4BlackLives movement, started by our students last December, catalyzed an important and ongoing discussion about violence, social injustice, and inequities that are prevalent in our society and focused us on the work we must do within on our own campus to become a truly inclusive community.

    Tobacco Free at Work

    Dear Members of the Campus Community,
