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 Case Western Reserve 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.
Together, a number of colleagues across the Case Western Reserve University campus, including the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence, have issued a joint statement of support for the Asian community in response to the increase in violence and hate crimes over the past year.
