"Yesterday was an important day in our nation's history. Derek Chauvin received a fair trial and a just verdict. But much remains to be done. Serious discussions regarding social justice and equity must continue. Francis Marion University will remain a leader in initiating and sustaining those conversations across this community and region.”

-FMU President Dr. Fred Carter
