Honors Stands With You Against Racism

In historical recognition and hopeful celebration of Juneteenth 2020, the University Honors Program joins Utah State University in condemning all acts of racial violence, oppression, and intolerance and in grieving with the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and far too many other Black Americans. We stand with those in pain and against systemic racism, and we believe that Black Lives Matter. Recent heartbreaking events have exposed ongoing national challenges in the areas of racial equality, public health, and economic security. The USU Honors Program is built upon the poet Horace’s ancient “sapere aude” challenge, a dare to know that leads students to ask respectful questions, seek responsible answers, and create caring communities. While we realize that actions speak louder than words, we also acknowledge that a meaningful, accountable plan of action requires clear vision, careful listening, and thoughtful collaboration. The University Honors Program is engaging—and will continue to engage—with its students, faculty, alumni, and staff in this work.
