Our Community. Our Shared Values.
By Dr. Eli Capilouto

Last week I was privileged to be a part of a conversation with two dozen Black and African American undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in my home. Although this gathering had been on the calendar for several weeks, the timing was ideal for the three hour dialogue that occurred.

It was an essential moment for me and other members of our leadership team to hear from our students, in their own words, what they experience on our campus. They shared their hopes for themselves, their friends, and their futures; and they laid bare the uncertainty, anxiety, and — in many cases — fear that comes day-after-day with being a member of an underrepresented part of our UK family. I am grateful for their willingness to be honest, open, and straight-forward as they shared their lived experiences with us.
