A university wide video message from our provost, apparently intended for instructors but sent to all staff, includes him quoting Winston Churchill. Given our large international student (and employee) body, I think he might have chosen a different person to quote (or maybe leave the inspiring quotes out entirely). Definitely have some ways to go in inclusivity.
I feel like they did at least try with this one. (Sensitive for gender mentions.)
