Dear members of the college community,

Once again I feel moved to write.  I have an abiding faith in the people of SUNY Oswego to truly live the values of the just, compassionate, supportive and active college community we are. I am asking that each of us remember we can reach out with respect and understanding to provide care, comfort and solace to one another as our nation faces deeply troubling times; times when violence, fear and frustration are shrouding our lives, and particularly those of African American males and their families.  We can, individually and together, stand for justice and change—actively seeking to create a better world for today and tomorrow as well as recognizing and honoring those devastated by violence and hate.

Sincerely,
Deborah F. Stanley
President
