Statement of Solidarity
In this time of urgency and crisis, we at the Department of Transnational Asian Studies and the Chao Center for Asian Studies denounce and condemn the recent horrifying rise in racist attacks against Asian/Asian-American/API communities. We wish to extend our support and solidarity to students, faculty, and staff, some of whom have themselves experienced stereotyping, intimidation, and the threat of violence. We encourage members of the Rice community to report any and all acts of bias and harassment, to act as allies, and to affirm and embrace our shared humanity.
On-campus resources include the Office of Multicultural Affairs, in the RMC Cloisters, and the Office of Access, Equity and Equal Opportunity.
