Dear Milligan community,
We are thankful for the community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who care deeply about Milligan and how we can better respond to racial tensions and foster racial reconciliation. The petition circulating on social media promoting this important work is an example of that concern. The MultiEthnic Resource Team (MERT) identified many of the strategies recommended in the petition, and our summer work group that I announced on June 19 is working on specific actions that move us closer to being a better institution as quickly as possible.
Many of these items will be addressed in an upcoming progress report. You can find our recent statements explaining our commitment and efforts to intensify our work in this area at www.milligan.edu/diversity. We encourage you to review and share this information.
We invite ideas and feedback to be submitted to Lee Harrison, who leads this work. We approach this work with a desire for open and supportive dialogue as we learn, listen, and act.
Bill Greer, President
