Statement From Dean Betsy Farmer 11-19-21

Dear colleagues and students, 

Once again we are faced with continuing injustice in America. The acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse is another assault on justice, a damning reflection of our nation and its court system’s biases, and a reminder that our country has a long way to go to reckon with racism.   

We know how much work needs to be done. And we know how complex this work is. I hope that we can come together to support each other, our students, and our friends and families as we struggle with this verdict and the messages that it sends. 

Please take care – of yourself and those around you. 

In anguish and solidarity,
