Dear Fielding Community, Within the span of a few days, we have experienced two more tragic mass shootings: one during the Lunar New Year celebration in Monterey Park, California, on Saturday, Jan. 21, and another separate shooting at two farms on Monday, Jan. 23 in Half Moon Bay, California. These horrific and senseless acts are heartbreaking. We recognize how these tragedies impact the Asian community around our country. We are so saddened that such a joyous celebration of culture and tradition and others going about their daily lives were overshadowed by grief, loss of innocent lives, and fear for one's [...]

A New Year’s Message From President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D.

2023-01-06T11:14:49-08:00

Dear Fielding Community, Welcome to 2023! President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D. On the occasion of another full turn of the earth around the sun, what may await us as the New Year turns to 2023? Impermanence, as many philosophers remind us, is the only constant. Humans have both an enormous capacity for change and, simultaneously, a resistance to it. We lament all that isn’t anymore, and yet, we adapt quickly in light of new circumstances. Resilience, the watchword of the pandemic, is also our shadow. It allows us to become accustomed to conditions that are not ideal, but [...]

A Winter Break Message From Provost Wendi Williams, Ph.D.

2023-01-03T06:59:26-08:00

To dream, to rest, to turn away from the toxicity of grind culture are radical acts of love for ourselves and our culture. I often speak about how naps will not save you if you are still upholding anti-Blackness, white supremacy, ableism, and patriarchy. All these things are the opposite of love and care. We cannot to continue to dream up new ways of being while still supporting systems of domination. We can’t simply talk about the hopes of a world centered in justice while we continue to exhaust ourselves and each other and remain in allegiance with grind [...]

As this tragedy continues to unfold, we are reminded of the 2016 shooting that occurred in Orlando, Florida, at the Pulse nightclub in [...]
