Amidst the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, our universities are taking extraordinary measures to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and communities as we continue our front-line work to fight the virus through leading-edge research and medical treatment. As we undertake this critical work, we do so as communities committed to inclusion and belonging, drawing on the knowledge and strength of individuals from across our nation and the world. Now is the time for all of us to come together to support each other. Viruses have no nationality, no religion, no ethnicity, and no gender. As the leaders of America’s leading research universities, we ask all Americans to support each other as we deploy every tool at our disposal to protect our communities and fight this disease.
