Impact Summary

Diversity and Civility

Avoid making assumptions about individuals who you believe may or may not have come into contact with someone who is carrying the virus.

In some cases, public reactions to the virus have been sensationalized, and there have been individuals at institutions of higher education who reported encountering discrimination and harassment due to biased assumptions and overreactions. We treasure our international community members, students of color, and everyone who may be affected by this situation. We want to remind all members of our community to embody UMB’s Core Values of diversity and civility by providing understanding and support during this evolving situation.
