I know that many of you are feeling anger and hurt tied to the death of George Floyd. His death – and those of many other people of color throughout our nation’s history – was wrong.
One source of our University’s strength is its diversity, and our contrasts create learning experiences beyond the classroom. I realize the privileges that can come from the color of one’s skin, and I join with our students, faculty, staff, and alumni in pledging to learn from all the members of our campus community. I see you, and I value your humanity.
We condemn all acts of racism, discrimination, and hatred. These acts defy the very spirit of Louisiana Tech, and they negate our belief in our Tenets.
Return to Campus Planning
As we continue in Phase One of the Return to Campus plan and look forward to learning more state guidelines about Phase Two, the members of our Louisiana Tech Incident Response Team are considering how we should navigate through this challenge.
One thing is for certain – it will take work from all of us to return to campus safely in the fall.
Since the pandemic started, our No. 1 priority has been ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus. This will require long-term effort and commitment, cooperation, teamwork and understanding – all values that our community has shown in so many ways since we began to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.
When we return, each of us will have to be personally responsible for ensuring we’re healthy before we venture back on campus. We’ll have to ensure that we continue to practice physical distancing, washing our hands, and wearing face coverings when recommended
While they won’t remove all risk, these combined efforts by all members of our community will help create a safer and healthier environment. I appreciate your commitment to keeping our students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors safe.
We will continue to engage members of our campus community in refining our plans for transitioning our return to campus. I will keep you posted through regular communications. Please continue to check your emails.
