The College of Geosciences does not tolerate bigotry, hatred, or racism. We maintain our commitment to welcome all who seek to make their impact and achieve their goals in a diverse community. The senseless acts of violence that have taken the life of George Floyd and so many others affirm the need for all of us to work towards dismantling racism and building an environment of inclusion.
