COVID-19 Updates DMH

Friday, June 5, 2020

Dear DMH Family,

I ended my email last Friday with acknowledgement of the pain and anger felt by all of us following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and so many others. Our nation’s history reflects centuries of racism and marginalization of Black people, indigenous peoples, Latinx and many others and these events demonstrate how far we still have to go to achieve racial justice. This past week has been filled with deep emotional distress, particularly for our students, staff, and faculty of color, and we must support each other and stand together. The first items of this update address activities related to building an anti-racist agenda for our department and the school. I have also included other updates regarding pandemic-related activities to keep you in the loop. Please reach out with any concerns or questions. I am eager to help.

As always, I am grateful for all of you and all that you do. Summer Institute is in full swing and I know that is taking additional time. However, I hope that each of you is finding a way to make space for quiet moments, things that bring you happiness, and things that promote your own health. Here at my house, this has taken the form of new flowers to enjoy while sitting in my backyard. Oh, and the puppy :-) photo of puppy
