Public Statements on Racial Justice

For more than 200 years, our nation’s Jesuit colleges, universities, high schools and middle schools have taken the slow and deliberate path of educating students for thoughtful, moral citizenship. Our efforts have been well-intended, yet imperfect. The killings of George Floyd and so many others challenge us to act against the overt and unrecognized racism that lurks in the American community and in the recesses of our own hearts. As our Jesuit mission calls us to do, let us use our collective voices as a lever for justice and the common good. We call upon our students, alumni, faculty and staff to take concrete steps to make a difference in our own institutions and in our nation.
