Why Study World Languages & Cultures?

Solidarity Statement

The Department of World Languages and Cultures is outraged by the manifestations of structural racism and inequality that we have been seeing play out time and again in our country. We stand in solidarity with protesters and with all those who have suffered from all forms of state-sanctioned violence and inequality. As members of a diverse educational department, college and university, we must renew our commitment to actively undo structures that hinder full participation of Black students, colleagues, community, and family members. We oppose ignorance and hatred that animates racism and seek to promote social justice for all.
