Below is a preview of the letter to the campus community. Please visit the link in our bio to read the entire letter and join the challenge. --- The senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others have compelled all of us to face some difficult, painful truths about who we are as a society, as a nation, and frankly, as human beings. The violence at the hands of police, the passionate protests, and the raw, emotional stories shared by the Black community have left us grappling with a monumental question: where do we go from here? --- As the leadership team at Jacksonville University, we acknowledge that we have much to learn and a great deal of work to do. Over the past few weeks, we have been listening and we will continue to listen. We sincerely thank you for participating in the listening sessions and in candid conversations among students and colleagues. You have shared openly with us your own painful experiences, both on our campus and in the broader community, and we would like to respond by stating: --- Black lives matter. To all our Black students, faculty, and staff: We see you and hear you. We will work tirelessly to build a campus and classroom environment where you feel safe and supported. --- We acknowledge that white privilege is real and must be addressed. --- Brutal violence against people of color at the hands of police must stop. ---- Creating a safer, more equitable world begins here on our own campus. Open dialogue is a start, but we must remain intentional about educating ourselves. As an institution of higher education, we believe in the power of learning and its ability to reshape our thinking and our behavior. ---- For that reason, we urge members of our campus community to join us in a 21-day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge. As your senior leaders, we commit to read, listen or watch something every day that furthers our understanding of issues that impact the Black community -- issues involving power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity. --- Click the link in our bio to continue reading the letter and download the PDF to join us in the 21-day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge.

We have taken some time to be #MutedAndListening on social media to hear from our JU community, particularly our Black students and alumni. Last week we promised to be part of meaningful change -- to do better. Here’s how we’re starting. —— First, Black Lives Matter. Second, we know you have more to say and we want to listen. Students, we invite you to join one of these listening sessions with Dean of Students Dr. Kristie Gover. Each session will be a safe, open forum for you to express your thoughts and concerns with Dr. Gover and other University leadership. —— We want to work with you to build a better JU. It starts with honest dialogue. Please visit the link in our bio to sign up.
