Wheaton College Statement Against Racism
Message to Campus from President Philip Ryken and Senior Administrative Cabinet

"We all are witnesses to the egregious and senseless violence that recently claimed the lives of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd. Their deaths speak to the enduring presence of systematic and institutional racism within our society. As a community, we are deeply distressed by violent acts that have persisted in our country for more than four centuries."
