Our Commitment
to Anti-Racism

The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to an interdisciplinary, liberal arts approach in promoting diversity, inclusion, and equity at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and throughout our society. We condemn racism, bigotry, and injustice and stand in solidarity with all those using nonviolent means to demand justice and dignity for all people.

I expect our college to continue to listen to, respect, and offer support to our Black and underrepresented students, staff, and faculty as we strive to create and maintain a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment for everyone.
