A Statement on Behalf of CSU by President Z Scott, Esq.

White HouseThe Chicago State University community is deeply saddened and troubled by the events that unfolded in our nation’s capital on January 6, 2021. These events occurred as our nation continues to grapple with the devastating impact of a global health pandemic and the consequences of systemic racism that are widening education, health, and wealth gaps across our communities. 

We condemn the behavior of those who seek to undermine the fundamental principles of our democracy. In the days ahead, we encourage all of our nation’s leaders to renew their focus on the orderly and peaceful transition of power. We must work to reassure our communities, our country, and the world that we are committed to liberty and justice for all.
