A message from U-M School of Nursing academic program leadership
Dear U-M School of Nursing students,Many of you are deeply impacted by the recent killings of African Americans and the sense of pain and powerlessness that is being expressed across the country. This is happening as we also see increasing racial disparities in health and an anti-Asian racism that has only been exacerbated since the COVID-19 pandemic.

A message from Dean Patricia Hurn
COVID-19 has consumed so much of our lives these last months, claiming our attention, emotions and time. I ask that you pause and look hard at the unbelievably horrible events in Minnesota and the killing of yet another African American man, George Floyd. This new horror follows hard on the heels of escalating violence around the United States against men and women of color over the last months.We have to increase our vigilance, stop repeating history and never accept this as just part of our lives, as the new normal.
