Holy Names University is committed to evaluating how we live up to our institution’s social justice mission, how our community members experience it, and how we can expand it so that we can co-create an anti-racist institution. Read the Anti-Racism pledge from the President’s Cabinet.

We encourage our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters to join us in signing our Anti-Racism Pledge, committing to self-reflection, and taking action that supports an actively anti-racist campus, community, and society.

Join us in taking HNU’s Anti-Racism Pledge:

I recognize that structural racism in the form of policy, micro-aggressions, and silence disproportionally impacts Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. I also recognize that systems of oppression are perpetuated both by specific actions and by inaction and passivity. I pledge to address the root causes of the inequities that result from institutionally racist policies and practices. Drawing upon the SNJM Core Value of dedication to justice I choose not to accept these conditions as they exist and to accept the responsibility for changing them.
