National Student Walkout

Today, we take a brief moment of reflection to think critically on the safety of the students that we teach, advise, mentor, and instruct in our labs. 

Today, at 10am, Georgetown students walked out of their classes for 17 minutes, raising their voices and demanding change on the one month anniversary of the Parkland tragedy. We have the right to work and teach in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in our classrooms or on our way home from school.

We stand in full solidarity with our undergraduates across the United States in demanding that this issue is not forgotten, that real change happens, and that this real change comes from uniting together and letting our collective voices be heard.
