A MESSAGE FROM THE VP/AP/CDO
The attack on our nation’s Capitol earlier this week was unlike anything most of us have witnessed in our lifetime.
It was an indelibly dark moment, exposing division and inequities that have been amplified throughout our society in recent years.
Through this darkness and difficulty, strength and light can be found in the promise of our democracy and in the voices of the people who desire and stand for justice, equity and inclusion.
A Brave Space to Reignite our Commitment to Equity and Justice will engage voices in civil discourse while reinforcing diversity, equity, inclusion, respect and justice. Please join us on Friday, January 15th at 12:30pm (register at aub.ie/brave).
A MESSAGE FROM
DR. JAY GOUGE
Like many of you, I am deeply troubled and angered by the violent acts that transpired last week at the U.S. Capitol. The images from Wednesday reaffirm we have much to do as a nation to heal deep-seeded wounds and restore the belief that our democracy is the firm foundation on which we build unity and common bonds.
On behalf of Auburn’s students, faculty and staff, we call on our nation’s leaders to ensure a safe and peaceful transition to the new administration. I also urge that the Auburn Family come together as part of the collective solution by engaging in constructive conversations with friends, family, classmates and colleagues.
As always, I am grateful for the Auburn Family, and I know we will get through these trying times, together. Although we sometimes disagree, it is incumbent upon us to remain unified in our respect for our nation’s democracy and the role it plays in helping people reach their hopes and dreams and building a better world around us.
