Trustees, University Leaders Respond to the Black Laurentian Initiative

In June 2020, a group of students known as the Black Laurentian Initiative sent a letter to St. Lawrence's Board of Trustees and shared their personal experiences and emotions as Black students at St. Lawrence.

A response was sent to the group on July 30, 2020. "As Laurentians, we now resolve to join together, fueled by the courage and vision of our campus and broader community, to confront systemic racism with united action."
