Black Lives Matter. We join many other departments and colleagues across the USF Community in solidarity. We too are outraged and pained by the brutal murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, Tony McDade, Adrian Medearis, and so many others who have lost their lives due to racism, white supremacy, and police brutality.  We are disgusted by the violent attacks on peaceful protesters rising up to express the grief and anger felt by generations of Black people who experience racism daily.

Student Leadership and Engagement stands in solidarity with our students and supports student activism. We are committing ourselves to breaking down institutional barriers as well as confronting our own individual privilege as staff within this institution, particularly as white and non-Black people of color who must constantly challenge our anti-Black racism.

For those who want to join us in self-education and action, we will continue to post resources on our website this summer.  Changing the world from here starts here, with each of us doing what we can for our individual and collective growth to dismantle the white supremacist structures that threaten Black Lives. Contact us with any suggestions, or join our open office hours on Zoom to continue the conversation.

In Solidarity, Student Leadership and Engagement

What do you stay for? This semester SLE wants to hear and share the stories of why you stay on campus after class is over. Whether it's for club meetings, your favorite events, or just where you feel at home on the Hilltop — we want to highlight what makes being a USF student so special. Follow along this semester on campus and on social media as we begin to highlight what #UStayFor! And please join in. We'd love to hear from you, use the hashtag or contact us at

Student Leadership and Engagement understands that you seek out involvement and leadership for a variety of reasons, some of which are serving others, networking, building skills, discovering yourself, making new friends, and creating change.
