COVID-19 Information for the Butler Community
Statement Against Anti-Asian Racism
In holding with the founding principles of Butler University, the Faculty Senate expresses unequivocal support for Asian and Asian American students, faculty, and staff in our community. This is in light of the verbal and physical violence that persons of Asian descent have experienced in the United States and globally because of anti-Asian racism following the COVID-19 pandemic. We reject racism, xenophobia, and nativism, and stand with those who have been harmed by all forms of anti-Asian incidents. We call on all members of Butler University to actively resist ill-informed, biased perspectives about China, Chinese people, and all other Asian people assumed to be from there. We further urge all members of the Butler community to continue to uphold our institutional values of diversity, equality, and inclusion at this difficult moment in our national history.
