COEHS Statement in Support of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander Communities

It is with pride and a sense of mission that UNM COEHS embraces its diversity and the diversity of our state, nation, and world in all its difference—gender, race and ethnicity, sexuality, ability, and the intersections among these representations of our common humanity. We draw our strength of purpose from our diversity, and our diversity fuels our actions. We decry the recent racist and violent attacks against persons of Asian descent and the accompanying xenophobia. We stand with our Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander staff, students, and communities without waver. In the face of this hatred, we will step forward with initiatives supporting Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders as an emblem of our dedication to our ideals and support for equity and inclusion.

Hansel Burley, Dean, COEHS
