Twin Cities Business magazine recognized President Julie Sullivan and Distinguished University Chair, Professor and Founding Director of the Racial Justice Initiative Yohuru Williams on its “TCB100: The People to Know in 2021” list at a virtual ceremony last night.
Nearly 600 St. Thomas community members gathered virtually over Zoom for the 2020-21 academic convocation, in which two important topics – the COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustice – were frequently addressed.
St. Thomas President Julie Sullivan released the following statement in response to Tuesday’s news that the U.S. government has agreed to rescind Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) rules, which would have barred international students from remaining in the U.S. if their colleges and universities were forced to move classes completely online due to COVID-19.
