Cottey College is saddened by the recent heartbreaking events that have taken place across the United States. The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others who have been tragically killed show that our country has a long way to go in the fight against racism and injustice.

We stand with and support the rights and freedoms of all of our students, faculty, and staff. We are committed to promoting inclusion and diversity in all of our students and employees and see it as part of our responsibility to educate and prepare future generations. We stand in opposition to racism of any form and will never tolerate it.

We mourn with those who mourn, support those who are oppressed, stand up to those who persecute, and hope for a day when people of all races can stand in unity and peace.
