Plant Pathology Stands in Support of Asian and Asian American Students, Staff, and Faculty. The uptick in violence against Asians and Asian Americans in the U.S. in recent weeks is horrific and unAmerican. This department and this institution stand steadfastly with our Asian and Asian American students, staff, and faculty. We condemn in the strongest way possible recent violence and bias. We thank our Asian and Asian American colleagues for their contributions to our science, our profession, and our department. You belong here. Events like the recent shootings can leave scars and can affect each of us in different ways. The University of Minnesota provides resources to support students, staff, and faculty in dealing with bias and the emotional impacts of violence. If you need support, please reach out to Susan Kingsbury, Kristen Opitz, or Jim Bradeen.
