NEBHE Issues Statement on Racism
We stand with the leaders, faculty, staff and students from New England higher education in opposing racism and racial violence in all forms. We unite with Black communities and allies across the region--parents, students, teachers, leaders, policymakers and others--in calling for a just and equitable society.
Education is fundamental to creating that society. We pledge to redouble our efforts as an organization and to work with institutions, colleagues and partners across the region to bring issues of inequity to the forefront and to promote opportunity, equity, diversity, inclusion and a resolve for change. Everyone deserves to live, work and learn without barriers--seen and unseen--and without fear.
