As protests continue across the world in support of Black Lives Matter following the death of George Floyd and other victims of racism and police brutality, University of Cincinnati students organized their own peaceful protests around campus.
Hundreds of students and others in the UC community marched around campus Wednesday, June 3. That same day, President Neville Pinto released a message outlining ways the university will take action against racism through criminal justice, education and university accountability.
"To members of our Black community, please know we hear you," Pinto said. "We stand in solidarity with you to end this horrific cycle. We recognize our imperfections as an institution, and we remain committed to creating an environment in which all members are treated with dignity, respect and care.
"As an institution of higher learning, we must answer the call for a higher contribution to society during these difficult and defining times in our nation’s history."
