From the Latino Faculty and Staff Association,
As faculty and staff, we care about the success and general well-being of all our students. We understand the experience of not feeling valued in the university setting when acts of bigotry and discrimination go unchallenged or elicit no response from the administration.
Thus, the LaFaSA wants to state our strong and unequivocal support for students of color at Purdue University. We value the leadership of students of color as the agents they are in determining both their own needs and the tangible solutions for those needs. We urge the administration to actively and openly work with students toward measurable solutions to improve the experience of students of color at Purdue University.
