On March 6, 2021, Interim President Scott Cowen and Provost and Executive Vice President Ben Vinson III issued a statement in response to recent attacks against those of Asian descent. In it, they stated that hate crimes and harassment will not be tolerated and reiterated the University's commitment to diversity and inclusion. They expressed again that all are welcome and needed here and that each of you is part of our university community.
In addition, a number of Case Western Reserve schools, centers, departments, student groups and more have added their voices to the conversation, adding unequivocal support for the Asian community on campus, in Cleveland and throughout the world.
