“Being a member of the Hawkeye family is about more than wearing black and gold; it’s is our work ethic, friendliness, and willingness to collaborate even when it doesn’t involve personal gain. Right now, that means wearing a mask to help reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for everyone in our community. It also means we will not tolerate anything but a safe and inclusive campus for people of all backgrounds regardless of race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, ancestry, or disability. If you experience or witness bias related to the virus, contact the Campus Inclusion Team or the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity.”
