Dear NCCU Community:

I join other higher education leaders in condemning the violence and hatred expressed in Charlottesville. As chancellor of North Carolina Central University, I encourage our students, faculty and staff to remain advocates for unity while understanding the importance of diversity, free speech and respect without hatred. I am inspired to know that our Law School students hosted a “Peace Rally” this evening.

I encourage anyone in the NCCU family needing assistance or support regarding this weekend’s events to contact our Counseling CenterOffice of Spiritual Development and Dialogue and the many other resources available to our Eagle community.

In Truth and Service,

Johnson O. Akinleye, Ph.D.
