#StudentAffairsBLM #EquityOverInjustice

Happy Juneteenth! In light of the recent national events, of racial injustice, UIS and the Division of Student Affairs stands firm with the Black community. We value the humanity of our students, faculty, staff, and administration who are deeply entrenched in the racial tension. We stand against the long history, practice, and ideology of systemic racism and recommit ourselves in the fight towards justice & equity.

  • As we know, COVID-19 has ravaged communities around the globe. In the U.S. alone, it has had far-reaching, and damaging effects. At the University of Illinois Springfield, we have generated a campus resource to inform and educate campus constituents about some of the impacts.COVID-19’s diverse nature continues to have a grave impact on populations we work, learn, and share community with, every day.
    We share this resource in the hopes of starting a dialogue around awareness. Being educated about COVID-19’s diverse impacts is one of the defenses we can use.
    Please feel free to post this resource to your department’s page, and other social media outlets. Let’s continue to do our part in flattening the curve while at the same time, reducing stigma.
