How to Apply Faculty Research & Outreach


SPDC In Support of Our Communities

SPDC echoes the messages from both President Stanley’s and Provost Woodruff’s statements about the impacts from the verdict in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin. Although the verdict brings in some justice and relief, it is difficult to imagine or measure how our African American and other communities of color are affected.

As we ponder the meaning of the murder of George Floyd, the trial, and the verdict, the Provost reminded us of the final push near the end of the semester and that this time could be particularly hard on our students. 

For SPDC students, there are several CAPS listening space events from today through April 29. For faculty and staff, the Employee Assistance Program provides counseling and services. If you have concerns/suggestions, or need to talk to someone, please reach out to me, your mentor, or your program director.
