Letter to the Administration


↓



Dear Dr. Brenner and UNIS Leadership,

We, students and alumni of the United Nations International School, write to you today to voice our collective frustration that racism and marginalization continue to go unaddressed within our school. At this crucial time in history, an organization that promotes the United Nations’ ideals of peace, dignity, and equality has chosen not to take swift and overdue action that aligns with these principles. This is a disappointment to the UNIS community, but, for Black students and alumni, not a surprise. The administration’s unwillingness to state that “Black Lives Matter” and denounce racism beyond empty gestures mirrors the school’s complacency toward the discrimination within its own halls. This moment illuminates the inequities we experienced as students and reinforces that, throughout our formative years at UNIS, many of us have never truly felt at home.


For too long, UNIS has carefully curated the illusion of itself as a multicultural utopia while Black students and other marginalized groups suffer from a culture of ignorance and isolation. In order to preserve a façade of harmony, it has glossed over the reality of racism rather than working to dismantle it. The Instagram page @blackatunis, created to amplify Black voices in the UNIS community, received over two hundred submissions in its first five days—painful memories of prejudice that would otherwise remain unheard. These stories, doubtless just a fraction of the racist incidents that have occurred, reveal how we learn to laugh along instead of cry, to blend in instead of stand out, and, worst of all, to internalize discrimination as our truth. It is shameful that, for many of us, it took leaving the four walls of UNIS to process these experiences and their detrimental effect on mental health. We have seen firsthand how UNIS profits off the image of its multicultural student population at the expense of true inclusion and equity. While promising to raise the next generation of global citizens, UNIS fails to equip its students with the necessary education to navigate discrimination in our own lives, let alone to combat it on an international scale.  


As the beneficiaries of a private education, we recognize our immense privilege, but we are not blinded by it. We insist that you meet the attached list of demands, compiled by a coalition of current and former students. As a leader on the global academic stage, UNIS has the opportunity to create a new kind of learning environment that is safe, inclusive, and supportive for all. This begins by leaving behind the current passive approach to racism and by confronting overlooked discrimination within curriculum and culture. UNIS’s mission is to “inspire its students to become an active force in shaping a better world.” We intend to honor that mission, and we believe that we cannot build a better world without building a better UNIS. We demand that UNIS make these necessary changes in order to correct wrongs that have been perpetuated for decades.


We envision a UNIS that lives up to its principles and values the experience of diversity more than the appearance of it. We will partner with and hold the school accountable on the journey to create a just, equitable, and sustainable future.

Letter to the Administration






Dear Dr. Brenner and UNIS Leadership,

We, students and alumni of the United Nations International School, write to you today to voice our collective frustration that racism and marginalization continue to go unaddressed within our school. At this crucial time in history, an organization that promotes the United Nations’ ideals of peace, dignity, and equality has chosen not to take swift and overdue action that aligns with these principles. This is a disappointment to the UNIS community, but, for Black students and alumni, not a surprise. The administration’s unwillingness to state that “Black Lives Matter” and denounce racism beyond empty gestures mirrors the school’s complacency toward the discrimination within its own halls. This moment illuminates the inequities we experienced as students and reinforces that, throughout our formative years at UNIS, many of us have never truly felt at home.

For too long, UNIS has carefully curated the illusion of itself as a multicultural utopia while Black students and other marginalized groups suffer from a culture of ignorance and isolation. In order to preserve a façade of harmony, it has glossed over the reality of racism rather than working to dismantle it. The Instagram page @blackatunis, created to amplify Black voices in the UNIS community, received over two hundred submissions in its first five days—painful memories of prejudice that would otherwise remain unheard. These stories, doubtless just a fraction of the racist incidents that have occurred, reveal how we learn to laugh along instead of cry, to blend in instead of stand out, and, worst of all, to internalize discrimination as our truth. It is shameful that, for many of us, it took leaving the four walls of UNIS to process these experiences and their detrimental effect on mental health. We have seen firsthand how UNIS profits off the image of its multicultural student population at the expense of true inclusion and equity. While promising to raise the next generation of global citizens, UNIS fails to equip its students with the necessary education to navigate discrimination in our own lives, let alone to combat it on an international scale.  

As the beneficiaries of a private education, we recognize our immense privilege, but we are not blinded by it. We insist that you meet the attached list of demands, compiled by a coalition of current and former students. As a leader on the global academic stage, UNIS has the opportunity to create a new kind of learning environment that is safe, inclusive, and supportive for all. This begins by leaving behind the current passive approach to racism and by confronting overlooked discrimination within curriculum and culture. UNIS’s mission is to “inspire its students to become an active force in shaping a better world.” We intend to honor that mission, and we believe that we cannot build a better world without building a better UNIS. We demand that UNIS make these necessary changes in order to correct wrongs that have been perpetuated for decades.

We envision a UNIS that lives up to its principles and values the experience of diversity more than the appearance of it. We will partner with and hold the school accountable on the journey to create a just, equitable, and sustainable future.

Sincerely,

Demands for
Change


↓



The following list of demands is only the first step in an ongoing, collaborative journey to transforming our school.  We request that UNIS schedule a meeting between its faculty, staff, administration, and the board of trustees to discuss these demands, taking place no later than July 13, 2020. After this, UNIS must partner and collaborate with Black at UNIS representatives to develop a detailed action plan for the completion of each demand. This plan should be made public and shared with the entire UNIS community including students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, administration, and the board of trustees by August 1, 2020.


ACCOUNTABILITY
UNIS must take public responsibility for past oversights and hold itself accountable moving forward.


  1. Acknowledge UNIS’s role in perpetuating an environment where racism and discrimination thrive. Begin by sharing our letter and demands, alongside an official response, with the UNIS community, including students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, administration, and the board of trustees.
  2. Release a historical report of the demographic breakdown of the UNIS community dating back to 1970, and an annual report hereafter. The report should include data on the socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, nationality, and UN-affiliation of students, faculty, staff, administration, and the board of trustees.
  3. Establish mandatory, biannual anti-racist and anti-discrimination trainings and programs led by qualified professionals for new and existing faculty, staff, administration, and the board of trustees alike. Require parents and new students to undergo similar programming during orientation into the school. Chosen anti-racist professionals and programs must be thoroughly vetted by the administration, in tandem with Black at UNIS representatives, to ensure they possess an understanding of racism on local, national, and global scales.


DECOLONIZING EDUCATION
Students’ cultures and origins must be reflected, represented, and respected within the curriculum.


  1. Commit to immediate and ongoing collaboration with Black at UNIS representatives, chosen faculty, and decolonization experts to revolutionize the curriculum by incorporating material from pre-colonial and contemporary African and Indigenous Peoples, amongst other non-Western experiences and perspectives.
  2. Incorporate a complete and ongoing anti-racist curriculum for all students, from JA-T4, inclusive of discourse on current events and guidance surrounding organization, protest, and facilitating change.
  3. Lead the charge in efforts to transform the International Baccalaureate by partnering with Independent schools around the world and rejecting the Eurocentric focus of mainstream academia.
  4. Expand, deepen, and prioritize relationships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and university centers for diversity and inclusion.


REPRESENTATION
UNIS must take steps to increase socioeconomic diversity at all levels.  


  1. Increase and improve the accessibility of academic scholarships and need-based financial aid for local (non-UN affiliated) BIPOC students.
  2. Recruit, hire, and retain Black professionals to achieve and maintain equal representation across the staff, faculty, leadership, and governance. Priority should be given to departments and class levels where Black staff are both crucial and underrepresented, such as in leadership, guidance counseling, and college counseling. 


TRANSFORMATION
The guiding principles behind the UNIS institution must be re-evaluated to be explicitly anti-racist and anti-discriminatory on an intersectional level.


  1. Conduct an independent review of all named faculty and staff in posts submitted to and posted by @blackatunis. A comprehensive report, detailing the procedure, findings, and disciplinary actions undertaken, must be shared with the UNIS community, including students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, administration, and the board of trustees.
  2. Ensure the school's commitment to upholding anti-racist and anti-discriminatory behavior by reviewing and revising the Student & Parent Handbook, the Guiding Principles, the Faculty Handbook, and all other relevant documents. This should be done in close collaboration with Black at UNIS representatives, representatives of the Future Council at large, and the Student Council. These revisions must guarantee:
    • A transparent, zero-tolerance policy for actions of racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, xenophobia, fatphobia, etc.
    • Clearly defined rehabilitation and corrective action plans for offenders, including anti-racist education and evaluations.
    • Clearly defined support plans for victims and marginalized groups and individuals.
    • Repeat offenses must result in termination or expulsion.
  3. Assure that mental health and counseling staff have active experience and training in:
    • Addressing the mental health issues that stem from acts of racism, sexism, class-based violence, and police brutality.
    • Supporting and guiding exploration of diverse gender identities.
    • Creating safe spaces to discuss and de-escalate incidents of racism and all other forms of discrimination.

The proverbial ball is in your court, UNIS. Thank you for your careful consideration.
