In Continued Support of Our Students


Dear LMU Faculty,  
As President Snyder shared earlier today in his letter to the community regarding the verdict in the case of Derek Chauvin, we share a collective sigh of relief that justice has been served in this case. Of course, there is much more to be done.  
We at LMU will continue the important work that we have begun to address systemic racism, ensure an inclusive culture, live our ideals, and strengthen our collective commitment to our mission and values.  
The university provides resources to support our community. I encourage you to utilize them if needed and share with your students. 
I ask that we all embody compassion and understanding in accommodating students who may be affected by the outcomes of this case. These truly are challenging times for all of us.
