The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures expresses its full support for President Drake’s statement from 29 May concerning recent events that have unfolded in the wake of the unnecessary death of George Floyd in Minnesota. We acknowledge with our University President that it is our task as educators and citizens to create a different future in which such tragedies are no longer possible. We affirm our support for African-American members of the Ohio State community and our commitment to diversity and inclusion at all levels of the University.

Robert C. Holub, Chair, Germanic Languages and Literatures on behalf of the executive committee
