Statement from the Latina/o and Mexican American Studies Program (LMAS)

On November 7, 2019, an assistant general counsel for the UNT System used a despicable and totally inexcusable racial slur during a public forum on campus. LMAS denounces the use of such language by anyone, including employees of the university. Ironically, the forum was intended to educate students, staff, faculty, and the public on free speech. Instead, the forum highlighted the discriminatory treatment of marginalized groups on our campus. We stand with our students and fellow faculty of color. We support the demands of the UNT Student Governance Association.
