CEAPS/EALC Joint Statement
Dear CU Champaign Chinese Community,
A recent rise in anti-Asian violence has heightened awareness of the importance of inclusion and diversity of the Asian-American community and the community at large. The Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies along with the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures appreciates the support that has been shown to our units from the University and the community. We condemn any threat or violence based on one’s race, ethnicity, identity, religion, or national origin. We are committed to diversity, inclusion, and intercultural learning through teaching, research, and public engagement based on the history and fundamental values of humanity. We stand in solidarity with all of you that have reached out and sent messages to us.
