The Institutes Statement on Racism and Intolerance

Our Statement on Racism and Intolerance

The Institutes mission is founded on the principle that knowledge is a catalyst for growth.  Knowledge prepares us to meet the needs of an evolving workforce and society.  It keeps us grounded on where we are and where we need to go.

We know we are in a society that for too long, is plagued by deep-rooted racial division. We know George Floyd’s death, among others in the Black community, proves how far we have to go to move past injustice and discrimination.  And we know that in order to move forward, we must assert our position.

The Institutes and its affiliates operate guided by a set of values that promote inclusion and working together.  We stand firm in our conviction that all forms of racism and intolerance are unacceptable.
