In recent times, the United States has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic challenges but most of all, racial injustice, inequality, and divide. Humankind is at a civil war against each other. While there have been numerous protests fighting for the rights of equal and fair treatment of minority groups, the portrayal of racial tension and division is still heavily evident to this day. With these tragic and unfortunate situations seen through the lens of the public media, these unforeseen events define a cycle of hostility and bigotry that must be broken. In result, we must continue to make progress in ending racial intolerance and xenophobia by being open-minded and empathetic. At American University of Health Sciences, we are a minority-serving, faith-based, for-profit health university located in Southern California. Our mission to promote communal and student diversity is one of our top priorities, as we believe that underrepresented students deserve an equal opportunity for higher education.
