As a land grant university, we have in our mission a goal of reaching every community throughout the state. We are really tapping into what our vision and mission are and trying to redress some of the harm that the university and the laws in this state have done to people of color. Part of redressing that harm is making the university truly accessible and welcoming to people of all races, colors and all walks of life.
