Letter to the editor

To the Framingham State

University Community:

Framingham State faculty and staff stand in solidarity with our students in condemning all hate crimes committed on our campus. Further, we commit ourselves to doing everything possible to promote a campus climate where diversity flourishes strongly and safely. Thank you to the many students who have done remarkable work against racism, sexism, and discrimination at FSU and beyond.

Hate exists everywhere in the world, including on our campus. We acknowledge that racism and sexism exist here today, both in individuals and in institutional structures. We denounce all hateful acts targeting members of our community and we commit to resisting strongly, in every way possible, the bigotry that reflects the tide of intolerance now appearing daily in our country.

As educators who work to nurture and sustain a welcoming campus climate that includes all of our students, faculty, and staff, we commit ourselves to opposing racism and sexism and to working to exclude all forms of discrimination from our classrooms, our departments, and our hiring committees; from all the work we do on curriculum; and from all our interactions with our colleagues and our students.

All students come to Framingham State to learn, and they have a right to do so in an environment free of threats, harassment, and discrimination. We will strive daily to cultivate a campus climate of understanding and mutual respect.  We will not be indifferent to racism, sexism, or discrimination that injures every one of us.  We affirm the importance of diversity in teaching and learning and we take responsibility for creating a community dedicated to informed and congenial discussions and a celebration of the multiple ways to be human.

Sincerely,

Osama Abdelgadir
