A Message from Dean Tweedie

There is no doubt that our country is erupting with hurt, confusion and anger right now. The violent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and too many more have resulted in protests across the country, both peaceful and violent, each one an outcry for long overdue justice and equality for black people and people of color.

As Dr. Houshmand and Dr. Lowman said in their messages, Rowan is committed to creating a campus that is welcoming and safe for all.

Edelman CCCA supports this by continuing to educate our students on how to use their voices, communication tools and abilities to foster equality and celebrate the world’s differences. We are committed to telling stories and creating art that celebrates diversity and questions prejudice, racism and violence.

We stand with black, brown and all people of color—brothers, sisters, students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends—in the fight for equality, equity and justice. And we stand with our fellow journalists, artists and storytellers who are covering and reporting on this monumental time in US history.

Please join the University and the divisions of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; Academic Affairs; and Student Affairs in virtual meetings that will provide information; a forum to discuss the issues; and the means to respond productively.

Sanford Tweedie, Dean
