To the Northeastern Community:
On December 5, 2006, I wrote to you about the importance of seizing the momentum created by our recent open dialogue on the issues of racism and intolerance. To that end, I am pleased to inform you of the formation of the Committee on Community Harmony and Inclusion.
With representation from students, faculty and staff, this committee will look into ways of building on our shared commitment to be a national and international leader in respecting our diversity, and reaffirming the humane values common across cultures, religions, and races/ethnicities. They will examine how to foster positive inter-group relationships on campus.
I am pleased that the following members of the Northeastern community have agreed to serve on this important committee.
