I recognize that events that have unfolded across the nation have the power to either divide us or unite us. Responses are varied and intense. People are hurt, angry and afraid. As Weber State University's Athletic Director, I find it of utmost importance to communicate our department's firm stance that racism, in any form, is not tolerated. Here in Wildcat Athletics, we will continue to promote an environment where we can be united, celebrate our differences and stand together in support of one another. There is no room for hatred; there is no tolerance for bigotry; and there is no excuse for hurtful interactions whether on social media or in person. We care about and take pride in each one of our athletes, coaches and staff members. Each one deserves to feel safe, respected, loved and valued.
