To the campus community from the Mike Curb College ...


The Mike Curb College of Arts, Media, and Communication stands in solidarity with our black faculty, students, and staff, saying unequivocally that Black Lives Matter. The murder of George Floyd is a horrifying tragedy and a violent crime of a kind that has been repeated over and over again stretching back centuries. As a society we must work for real change so that we don’t find ourselves back here again and again. In the college and at CSUN we are called to listen, learn, and take actions to live up to the ideals of diversity and inclusion that are central to our mission, vision, and values. This means taking concrete actions to better support our black students, faculty, and staff and all students, faculty, and staff of color. The disciplines within Arts, Media, and Communication have the power to reveal truths and change minds, and thus we must work tirelessly to include and amplify diverse voices in arts and media and promote representation at all levels in entertainment, cultural, and media institutions. Colleagues within the college and across campus have spoken powerfully, eloquently, and from bitter experience with racialized violence and institutional racism. Let us read their words, hear their voices, learn, and take action.
