Letter from Academy President,
Eric (VJ) Rubenstein, PhD

Dear Indiana Academy of Science members,
In response to recent acts of racism we have experienced in our country, the Council of the Indiana Academy of Science has adopted the following anti-racism position statement. This statement will be included in all official Academy documents and posted to the Academy website and social media outlets. This is the beginning of a more comprehensive exploration of how the Academy can promote equity, diversity, and inclusion in the scientific enterprise. I welcome your suggestions. Please contact me at 
emrubenstein@bsu.edu or our Executive Director, Delores Brown, at  execdir@indianaacademyofscience.org
Eric (VJ) Rubenstein, Ph.D.
