Dear Student,

All of us at the Learning to Learn office want you to know that we are here to support you in the wake of the murder of George Floyd and the resulting protests.  We also want you to know that our office and the university community condemns the senseless murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd.  The LTL staff is here to serve as a resource for you and we invite you to reach out to us.  You are not alone in your feelings of fear, anger, rage, despair, or hopelessness. We are with you and committed to marshalling our resources to stand in unity against anti-Blackness and racism.

We also want to remind you that our campus partners and the resources of the university are still available to you. The University Counseling Services, the Thea Bowman AHANA and Intercultural Center, the Montserrat Coalition, and Campus Ministry, stand ready to receive your calls, or emails, and to support you.  As you know, Boston College is a community of scholars that is committed to standing against injustice no matter where it is found. We will continue to work tirelessly to promote justice.  These murders offer us an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to the spread of justice across the nation. We will be relentless in our efforts to provide you with an education that strengthens your resolve and prepares you to face the injustice and racism that seek to menace society and destroy relationships, no matter where it is found, no matter who it targets.

These are extraordinary times in our country.  However, you can be assured that your education at Boston College has prepared you well for times such as these.  We support you. We stand with you. We love you.  We are here for you.

Sincerely,

The Learning to Learn Staff
