Unity 4 - Father Engh Offers Initial Response

Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015

In late May 2014, students from the Unity 4 group presented a formal proposal to the University administration detailing concerns about campus climate. On June 15th, Father Engh offered an initial response

Efforts are underway on many fronts to begin addressing the compelling concerns articulated by the group.  These include regular discussions between Unity 4 representatives and senior administrators; the display of posters in every classroom to explain how students can report bias incidents; the establishment of a Bias Incident Response Team; and a new orientation initiative to introduce all first-year students to the responsibilities of being a member of a Jesuit community.  Please be on the lookout for additional updates including an opportunity for students, staff and faculty to attend the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in San Francisco this May.

The formal Unity 4 proposal and response documents can be found online.
