Making equity a reality at PSU

Dear Campus Community,

Calls for changes to address systemic racism are being voiced across our campus. 

Thank you for sharing your ideas through hundreds of messages and by peacefully protesting on campus. I am listening. I am reading your messages, and I watched today’s protest. We continue to grieve the loss of Jason Washington across our community. 

I hear your urgency. Next week, I will outline to the Board of Trustees a collaborative approach for moving forward. I don’t have all the answers. But I am determined that we will rise to meet this moment, and through our collective work, make PSU known as a place where equity is reality. 

Sincerely,

Stephen Percy
President
