Black lives matter.

The Office of Graduate Student Life denounces the senseless killings of Black individuals, recurrent police brutality, and the racist systems which have enabled them. We stand in solidarity with the Black community here at Boston College and around the country.

Our mission is to enhance the educational experience and quality of life for Boston College graduate students, and that includes Black students. We recognize that we must strengthen our support and speak up against racial injustice and systemic oppression to ensure that all students in our advocacy feel safe, heard, and welcome.

We are committed to listening, to educating one another, to incorporating anti-racist education into ongoing staff training, to reviewing our current programming, and to working with the Graduate Student Association to prioritize engagement around issues of oppression, racism, and injustice.
