USM Foundation

An Important Message from Leonard Raley

on June 4, 2020 by Micaela Cameron

Dear Colleagues,

I want to share the statement from Chancellor Perman and all of the USM’s presidents and regional center executive directors regarding structural racism and the killing of George Floyd. Click here to read.

Never in the USM’s history has our leadership united in making such a joint message; never in my career have I felt prouder to be part of the USM community.

I can’t adequately express my sadness, fear, and concern for our minority communities and our democracy. Having spent my career in higher education, I do know this: as individuals and as an organization, we have a responsibility to listen, to learn, and to advocate for change.

I will continue to update you on the USM’s response and I hope to see you at our first ever virtual full board meeting of the USM Foundation next Thursday, June 11 at 3:00 pm.

Stay well and stay safe,

Leonard
