To the Students, Staff, and Faculty of the Statistics Department:

We stand with our Asian and APIDA students, staff, and faculty. You matter and belong here.

The recent attacks on our Asian and Asian, Pacific Islander and Desi American (APIDA) communities are unacceptable.  We are outraged at these attacks. This past year has been a challenging year and these violent acts and verbal hatred towards our Asian and APIDA communities make it even more challenging and intolerable.

The Statistics Department values our Asian and APIDA students, staff, and faculty and remain committed to bring and maintain diversity, equity, and inclusion in our department.

We challenge every member of the department to stand up against this racism and bias that occurs every day in this country.  We want you to know that you are welcomed here, and we support you. If we ever fall short in this regard, the members of the Climate and Diversity Committee want to help repair the situation. You can contact Laura Juszczyk and/or Karl Rohe.
