“We were disheartened to find the building — an important space for learning and community gathering on our campus — treated with such disrespect and disregard,” the school said in a statement.
“Incidents such as (this) do not minimize our commitment to our community — they strengthen them,” added J. Luke Wood, the school’s associate vice president for Faculty Diversity and Inclusion. “SDSU has and will continue to affirm our unyielding commitment to diversity and inclusion, and I call on your continued solidarity in support of our Black community and in support of our collective community.”
