As the world rises against racism and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, UC Riverside staff and faculty members want to remind students of the many existing resources available to them during this challenging period.    

“During the past few weeks, the world has been shaken to its core following the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. Their brutal deaths have galvanized many in our world to stand up for justice,” said Brian Haynes, vice chancellor of Student Affairs.

It is through these challenging times that one must reflect on how individual actions impact the larger community, Haynes said.

“In the office of Student Affairs we are committed to transforming the lives of our students with the support they need to thrive. We can do this by listening, building their trust, and giving them the tools to be successful,” Haynes said. 

Chancellor Kim Wilcox, Interim Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Thomas Smith, and Academic Senate Chair Dylan Rodriguez, have sent out letters to faculty members asking them to offer flexible grading and testing alternatives during finals. 

Christine Mata, UCR dean of students and associate vice chancellor for Student Affairs, said the university’s goal is to assist students as they experience and work through a wide range of issues.  

“Student Affairs is so much more than programming and event planning. Our students come to us when they need help and advocacy, need to process current events and changing societal narratives,” Mata said, noting that every department and group across campus plays a part. “Supporting our students is a team effort.”
