SPDC During This Time: Our Commitment and Promise
In this time of profound crisis involving the deeply troubling actions of Larry Nassar, we as the School of Planning, Design and Construction, are committed to supporting and helping to improve the campus climate pertaining to sexual harassment or assault. As a school, we are committed to an inclusive approach to respect and value differences that diversity brings, and to encourage and embrace an environment that allows us to celebrate inclusion through teaching, research and outreach.
