Standing up against structural racism

The OHSU Alumni Relations Program stands with OHSU President Danny Jacobs in opposing the recent senseless and tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, and of so many before them. Our program is committed to responding to the new and evolving needs of our alumni while securing a safe, inclusive and equitable community that accurately reflects and is strengthened by the full participation of its membership. Read Dr. Jacobs’ statement.
