Message to Newhouse students from Interim Dean Amy Falker

Dear Newhouse Students,
I understand and appreciate that the events of the past week have been unsettling to many on our campus, online students, and parents and alumni off campus. It’s important we stand together behind our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and in support of all our students.

Campus activism can be a transformative learning experience for a campus and its community. I’m sure many of your Newhouse classes have been discussing the events of the day in the context of what you are studying. 

I believe we should engage and try to better understand student concerns and their underlying issues, and do so in the spirit of finding a common path forward to building a better Newhouse and University community.
