AAR Board Issues Statement on Charlottesville

Members Invited to Share Ideas for Teaching and Learning

August 15, 2017

Higher education is enriched by the diversity of its teachers, students, and staff. People of different religious beliefs, races, political outlooks, sexual orientations, and those living with disabilities energize communities of learning across our nation. Diversity and inclusion in higher education are not liabilities; they are goods to be pursued and celebrated.

The Board of Directors of the American Academy of Religion condemns the hatred, bigotry, violence, racism, anti-Semitism, and the ideology of white supremacy that led to the deadly unrest at the University of Virginia and the city of Charlottesville. These attitudes and behaviors have no place in the classroom, the university, the learned society, or society at large.

As we begin a new academic year, we invite our members to share resources they plan to use to address these issues—readings, syllabi, lectures, assignments, community events, and other strategies. The AAR Executive Staff has begun collecting such resources and will provide venues for members to share their ideas as well. We will collect these and make them available to the entire membership. Please watch for further announcements on AAR social media.
