PWC Anti-Racism Statement

The Rice University Program in Writing & Communication (including the Center for Academic & Professional Communication and the FWIS program) condemns racism in all of its overt and covert forms, including both the current and historical acts of racism, discrimination, and violence perpetrated in this country against the Black community and other peoples of color. Our program expresses solidarity with President Leebron and Provost DesRoches, as well as our Faculty Advisory Board member Dr. Tony Brown, in the fight against the systemic racism that has maintained and prolonged bigotry and hatred in our country, including in academia. We commit to continuing to educate ourselves about the diverse needs of our diverse community. We pledge to create welcoming and safe spaces for our programming. We aspire to help Rice community members use their voices to stand against racism and injustice -- and to use our voices to that end also. Finally, we invite feedback so that we can continue to support all members of the Rice community in ethical and caring ways.
