In Solidarity with HBCUs
Washington College condemns the bomb threats made against Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the country on the first week of Black History Month.
We stand in solidarity with these institutions, particularly the three in the state of Maryland--Bowie State, Coppin State, and Morgan State.
We decry the bigotry and intolerance that deny individuals their rights to learn and work in environments free of violence and racism. We reinforce our commitment to celebrating the contributions, achievements, and accomplishments of African Americans -- not just during Black History Month, but all year long, as well as our abiding commitment to respect, inclusion, and belonging. It is our moral responsibility to prepare students to succeed in a world where diversity is the norm, and we denounce the forces that would deny this and diminish us all.
