“The death of George Floyd and current protest in response to it emphasize the long-known reality that black lives often endure unjust treatment daily. Discrimination and racism are embedded in the systems within our society, but at UCF we’re constantly working to be better at upholding our responsibility to listen to our community and enforce measures that prevent these injustices from happening at our university. This Friday from 2 to 3:30 p.m., we will host a virtual conversation about race and unity with the campus community to gain a better sense of the culture and climate at UCF.

To our black students, faculty and staff, we stand with you in demanding the equal treatment and value of your existence. To help you connect with campus services that are intended to support you, we’ve compiled a list of dedicated resources and organizations that can be accessed year-round. To our Knights of all races and ethnicities, there are also tools here to help educate you on how to uphold UCF’s mission for a diverse and inclusive environment that makes everyone feel safe and welcomed. Together, we will continue to work to be better source of support to our black community.”
