The School of Writing, Literature, and Film affirms its commitment to supporting all students, including those who may face discrimination based on race, nationality, gender, sexuality, ability, religion, class, and immigration status. As scholars, writers, and filmmakers, we recognize the power of words and images to shape as well as challenge discourses that dehumanize minoritized populations. In the light of recent efforts to end DACA and to block immigration from Muslim-majority countries, as well as the resurgence of white supremacist movements in our community and around the US, the critical interrogation of such rhetoric and the material oppressions it produces matters more than ever. We remain committed to creating and maintaining inclusive and diverse spaces in which students can learn.
