Statement on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice

The faculty and staff of the Greenberg-Starr Department of Chinese Language and Literature condemn the recent and ongoing violence and harassment directed at Chinese, Chinese Americans, Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders. As a department we exist to make Chinese voices heard. We exist to create a welcoming and supportive home for each and every one of our students. We assert that Black Lives Matter, and we stand with Middlebury students, administrators, faculty, and staff who are combatting all forms of racial and gender injustice, discrimination, and violence. As teachers, scholars, and members of the Middlebury community, we pledge to continue to learn, grow, and do everything we can to help advance the College’s commitment to creating a diverse, welcoming community with full and equal participation for all individuals and groups. We will endeavor to do more to educate ourselves and our students about the ethnic and cultural diversity within China and do more to expose students to more of the Sinophone world. We invite our students to share their ideas with us as to how we can best promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the life and work of the Chinese Department.
