“As the University of Iowa community experiences heightened anxiety around COVID-19, it is important to avoid assumptions about who may or may not be carrying the virus based on their identity. Discrimination on the basis of ethnicity or national origin is unacceptable and counter to our core values. If you experience or witness bias related to the virus, contact the Campus Inclusion Team or the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity.”
