Re: “Speak louder than racism” (February 8, Commentary, page 9).
The members of the Education Undergraduate Society (EdUS) would like to extend their deepest sympathy to the writer of this article and to all of those who have experienced similar events during their field experiences. As a student society, we are deeply concerned with these issues occurring during field experiences, and we are currently looking into ways to make support systems more accessible to students.
We would like to take this time to remind students that if they are facing a difficult situation, or if they would like to talk about anything pertaining to our Faculty – whether it is related to courses, field experiences, or the Faculty in general – our doors are open and we are here as outlets and support systems for you.
