“Martin Luther King, Jr. urged us to “be those creative dissenters who will call our beloved nation to a higher destiny ... to a new plateau of compassion, to a more noble expression of humanness.” So let us move forward in alignment with our strategic plan as an inclusive and vibrant community of students and scholars, applying the powers of learning and knowledge toward finding solutions for the grand challenges of Race, Racism and Social Justice.” – President Deborah F. Stanley
