Dear Spelman Community,

As someone who recognizes the perils of climate change, I am in full support of the activities that Dr. Aditi Pai and our faculty colleagues at Spelman are planning this week in order to protest policies and practices that hasten climate change.  I applaud their leadership and believe that our Spelman community should be actively involved in taking steps to counter climate change.

I plan to speak at the Spelman College Climate Strike on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at noon.

At the same time, I recognize the demands of the curriculum, especially as we approach midterms. I write to remind students and faculty members that those who have class require permission from their faculty member to participate in the one-hour strike from noon to 1 p.m.

The location of the event and more details will be shared with the Spelman community.

Again, my sincere thanks to our Spelman colleagues for their good work.

With appreciation,

Mary Schmidt Campbell, Ph.D.
