Dear ARC Friends and Colleagues,

All of us have been affected, personally and professionally, by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as well as the heightened awareness and activism emerging in the US and around the world in response to incidents of racism and violence. These are times that call for extraordinary resilience on the part of our students, ourselves, our institutions, and our society.

The Academic Resilience Consortium stands with Black Lives Matter to oppose systemic racism, to grieve for victims of racial violence and police brutality, and to achieve justice and equity.

We send you courage and hope as we all navigate these waters, engage our resilience, and create new ways to care for ourselves and others.

- Abigail, Adina, Myrna, and Nic
ARC Steering Committee
