University of Nebraska President Ted Carter today issued the following statement on Black History Month:
"Black History Month is an opportunity to celebrate the countless contributions our Black faculty, staff, students and friends have made in advancing the work and mission of the University of Nebraska. Without them, we would not be the impactful, accessible, world-leading university we are today.
"We must also use this time to reflect on the work still ahead in creating a more just and equitable world. I urge all members of the University of Nebraska family to participate in Black History Month events taking place across our campuses. Together we can listen, learn and commit to action toward a better future."
