We recognize that the verdict in today’s high-profile trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, who was charged with killing two people and shooting a third, during unrest in Kenosha, Wis., has stirred a great deal of discussion, debate and strong emotions.
Please know that the university’s resources are available for those who wish to process or have meaningful discussion about the trial’s outcome and the issues surrounding it. The University Counseling Center, Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center, and Student Center for Social Justice and Identity are affirming spaces that offer support and opportunities to engage.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to them in the coming days.
