To the Editor:

At the meeting October 25th, 2019, the undersigned and present members of The University Senate Executive Committee and the University Senate Standing Committee Chairs voted unanimously to condemn racist attitudes in thought, word, and deed. We deeply regret the sufferings of those experiencing the results of systemic racism and pledge to bring these issues before the University Senate for impactful action. UConn can and should be better than this.
