A Statement from Chancellor Malhotra

"My heart is heavy for communities today. We are all impacted by the death of Mr. Floyd. For those promoted by grief and anger, who are working peacefully to effect change in our communities, remember the Minnesota State community is with you. My thoughts go out to also the residents impacted by the unrest. Times like these require unity and strong resolve. We must work together to strengthen our connection and commit all of our efforts to addressing longstanding societal ills and help create places we not only take pride in, but where we can all feel safe, valued, and respected."
