On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I pause to reflect on the movement led and the legacy created by his actions.
Dr. King has energized generations of Americans who believe social justice and racial equality are values that must be lived out in a visible and purposeful way. There are many such individuals at UW Oshkosh.
I want to thank all members of our community who work hard every day to make our campuses more inclusive, welcoming and just places. Though we have a long way to go to achieve this vision, I am encouraged by the efforts and thoughtfulness of those engaged in this important work. I am committed toward that end.
