Student Processing Space

We invite students to join us for a virtual vigil.

Attending to the Here and Now: A Vigil Against Anti-Black Violence
Tuesday, June 2 • 6:30 pm CT • Zoom

In light of the recent killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, George Floyd, and the racial profiling of Christian Cooper, we want to provide space for students to process, grieve, and find solace in community.

The event will include words of remembrance, an opportunity for students to offer brief testimonials, and provide resources and skills for dealing with racial trauma. All undergraduate students and graduate/professional students are welcome and encouraged to participate.

STUDENT RSVP: https://ucinclusion.wufoo.com/forms/student-processing-space/

05/31/2020

Violence against Black people continues to plague our country. Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, George Floyd are some of the most recent names on a long list of Black men, women and trans people taken from their families and communities far too soon, not to mention the racial profiling of Christian Cooper. We are outraged, and though this message runs the risk of falling short, we refuse to be silent.

We will continue to engage the University community and support student‐driven initiatives in an attempt to raise critical consciousness. At the moment, our priority is offering support to you – our students – in any way that we can.

We are working with campus partners to host a virtual space for students this week. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out to any member of our team if we can be of assistance. We can also make personal connections to colleagues in other areas. If you're not sure where to start, you can always text us at 773.702.5710.

The "Great Equalizer?" Interrogating COVID-19's Racial Filter

The "Great Equalizer?" Interrogating COVID-19's Racial Filter

The rapid and expansive spread of COVID-19 throughout the United States led many prominent observers to dub the virus "the great equalizer." But these pronouncements were quickly called into question with the emergence of data on race and ethnicity of victims, which laid bare the disproportionate impact on Black Americans. Recent data on rising infection and high mortality rates in Latinx and Native American communities have further underscored how communities of color continue to bear the brunt of the pandemic's devastation. This panel features early research findings of UChicago scholars exploring these racial disparities and their roots in entrenched structural racism.

This work can be difficult, but it’s an example of the University’s commitment to embrace challenges and solve complex problems for the betterment of society.” — Vice Provost Melissa Gilliam

Back in June, the ELI sent out a survey to our students regarding the racial and social justice protests that were, and still are, occurring in the U.S. Several students responded to the survey and asked some wonderful questions. We have posted those (anonymous) questions and our responses to our blog: https://esl.uchicago.edu/2020/09/02/the-elis-response-to-recent-social-unrest-in-the-u-s/ Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with further questions: [email protected] Also, The University of Chicago Center for Identity + Inclusion is a great resource on social justice issues. You can subscribe to their newsletter to be sent information on upcoming events.
We write to underscore the message that was sent on Saturday, May 30, by University of Chicago Provost Ka Yee C. Lee regarding recent events happening across the country in the wake of the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. In addition to George Floyd, we mourn the lives of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and the countless other men and women who have endured racial injustice. We encourage you to explore your own feelings and how current events impact members of our community in different ways. We should recognize that we are fundamentally linked, namely by the University of Chicago—the living and learning community that we have chosen to be a part of. We know that there have been a number of unanticipated changes to our daily lives in a short period of time. Some of you have likely been unable to fully recognize the impact these changes have had on you, your friends, and your family. It is okay to not be ready to process everything that has occurred or respond to a call to action. If you need help dealing with your thoughts and feelings, please utilize University support resources. When you are ready and opportunities are presented, we ask that you join together to raise awareness, engage in dialogue, and propose meaningful solutions to historic challenges that are the result of bias and racism experienced in our country daily. We must work together to improve our community, and we owe it to ourselves to espouse the University’s core values of diversity and inclusion while doing so. As Provost Lee expressed, the University will continue to work to foster a sense of trust, inclusion, belonging, and safety for all. In the coming days, the University will host community conversations centered around current events. We hope that you allow your voice to be heard. We want you to know that we are here for you, and we stand with you as you navigate these challenging times.
