Black Lives Matter. IPE stands in support of the community at U-M and beyond who are utilizing their voices and actions to address the systemic racism that has been present for far too long in the United States and abroad. The fact that the horrific murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others in the Black community are still occurring today is a testament to the work that needs to be done in order to create a world in which these injustices are no longer a regular occurrence. With a renewed commitment to specific actions that support our staff’s professional and personal values regarding diversity, equity and inclusion, which are core to our mission as an intercultural education provider, we are hard at work creating our initiatives for the upcoming academic year. You can find IPE’s DEI mission, as well as updates on our plans, on our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion webpage.
