Faculty Approves Statement on Anti-Racism

In addition to developing the anti-racism statement, the Faculty Senate's Anti-Racism Task Force, led by Drs. Rachel Burk and Jina Fast, examined NDMU policies, practices, and structures in light of an antiracist critique of the institutional perpetuation of racial injustices and recommended changes.
