The faculty and staff of the Department of Electronic Media and Film fully support the statement of solidarity and purpose from the College of Fine Arts and Communications. EMF strongly believes that Black Lives Matter.
As a department, we will work towards anti-racism in our academic, professional, and cultural worlds. This change will involve learning, listening, training, reflection, but most importantly, actions. A main goal is to ensure that Black stories and voices be created, heard, seen, and amplified in and from our classrooms. We will engage in learning about anti-racism and race equity and putting this knowledge into practice. This change will extend through the work of our committees, staffing, guest artists, screenings, and into our pedagogy. It is important that the students, faculty, and staff of EMF all help create a more diverse and inclusive media and entertainment industry.
