The Department of Nutritional Sciences wants to express our solidarity with our Asian and Asian American community members. In the wake of recent bias and hate incidents on or near the University of Wisconsin campus, online and elsewhere in the country, we call for full and deep solidarity with students, faculty and staff members, and neighbors of Asian descent. We reject xenophobic and hateful attacks directed at people of Asian descent during the COVID-19 crisis. We, too, affirm the words of Patrick Sims, Deputy Vice Chancellor of Diversity and Inclusion, that “racism and xenophobia have no place in the #UWMadison community.”
