Pratt Institute

A message to the community from President Frances Bronet:

Like many of us, I am outraged and grieving the recent deaths of George Floyd in Minnesota, Breonna Taylor in Kentucky, Tony McDade in Florida, and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. These deaths and countless other acts of racial violence against the Black community have ignited protests across the country and here in Brooklyn, including at our own 88th police precinct across from our campus. It is further heartbreaking that this is happening at a time when people are already isolated, disheartened, struggling economically, and frightened about the future.

I believe it is important to restate firmly that Pratt Institute condemns injustice, discrimination, and racism in all forms, and maintains our unwavering commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We are listening and stand in solidarity with all of our colleagues, friends, and neighbors through this suffering and upheaval.

While Pratt’s campus remains closed by pandemic regulations, our essential workers continue to care for and protect our spaces, and in turn, we remain vigilant about protecting these workers and our entire Pratt community. We encourage students, faculty and staff who need additional support to reach out to available Pratt resources for assistance. Students can contact the Pratt Counseling Center twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week at 718-687-5356. Faculty and staff can seek support through Pratt’s Employee Assistance Program which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-311-4327 (TDD 800-697-0353). More information is available online. Faculty and staff can also access Emotional Support Resources on Pratt’s website.

As a member of the Pratt community, the greater Brooklyn community and a nation of neighbors, I join with all of you in our respect and care for one another.As your president, I renew my commitment, and the Institute’s commitment, to work to eradicate racism and injustice through our curriculum, our outreach, and our mission.

Please continue to look out for the health and safety of your loved ones and yourselves.
