Dean’s Statement on Anti-Asian Racism

9 June 2021

Dear colleagues, students, and staff,

The Lawrence Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at U of T strongly condemns anti-Asian racism, discrimination, and its contributions to the increasing violence and hate towards Asian communities like those in Atlanta, Georgia.

The U of T Nursing community stands in solidarity with the Asian community as we strive to work to address systemic racism in all its forms.

For students seeking support, U of T has counselling services available at any hour of the day via the U of T MySSP. Please call 1-844-451-9700 or download the app at the Apple App Store or Google Play.

For staff and faculty, support is also available through the Employee and Family Assistance Program, or please call 1-800-663-1142.
