The University of Hartford Remembers George Floyd

May 25, 2021

The following message was shared with faculty, staff, and students on May 25, 2021.

Dear University of Hartford Community,

It has been one year since George Floyd was murdered by Derek Chauvin. His tragic death was a catalyst for renewed demands for racial justice and police accountability across the world. Chauvin’s conviction last month was cause for hope, but there is much more work to be done to address systemic racism, inequality, and hate.

As we reflect on George Floyd’s legacy, we keep his family and loved ones in our thoughts and remember all of those who lost their lives due to racism and bigotry. As a University, we remain committed to fighting systemic injustice and working toward a more inclusive community.
