Day of Solidarity

Faculty and staff representatives from the College of Education and the Women and Gender Studies Program will sponsor a Day of Solidarity gathering. This gathering is for all faculty, staff and students who desire to stand in support of students and others who were victimized by the racist, sexist, homophobic and other offensive comments anonymously posted to the social media site Yik Yak. We invite all who are ready and willing to stand up against oppressive language and actions to wear black on Nov. 6.
T-shirts to wear for the event can be purchased by emailing with your size by Wednesday, Oct. 29. The cost of the shirt will be approximately $8. The shirts will say "We Can Do Better" (front) and "Panther Pride (noun): the feelng one gets from being a part of a diverse edcuational community that respects, supports, encourages and values the contributions of all its members while pushing all to rise out of their ignorance" (back).
