History Department Statement on #FordHall2015

November 24, 2015

The Department of History supports the recent calls for greater diversity within the Brandeis community. Our department and all departments will greatly benefit from the presence of more professors and students of color. We are committed to doing our part to making this happen. We further support a safe learning environment for all our students. We recognize the importance of the issues raised by #FordHall2015 and efforts to engage our community in an open discussion of pressing questions of racial justice and inclusion on our campus and in our society.
