HSU Stands Together

HSU Family,

Watching current events unfold around our country is both heartbreaking and dismaying. Life is precious, and we mourn George Floyd’s death and grieve with all who similarly have suffered injustice.

In this season of introspection, Hardin-Simmons University recommits to stand for what is good, right and true, and to teach our young men and women to embody Jesus’ approach to the world including fair treatment and justice for everyone.

Moral courage requires us to examine our hearts for seeds of callousness that may have taken root, not only individually but also collectively as an institution. This same moral courage then challenges us to speak out against bias and discrimination and unfair treatment. For too long, racism has been part of the lived experience of our communities of color. We must be intentional in striving to understand the complex issues of racism and social inequality and be deliberate in addressing those issues. HSU’s administration, faculty, staff, and students must support and encourage one another in this responsibility.

Our continued commitment at Hardin-Simmons is to consider every individual as beautifully and wonderfully made, equally entitled to participate in and have access to a quality education in an environment where inclusivity and security are informed by our Christian beliefs.

Safety on the Hardin-Simmons campus is a top priority. As faculty and staff are currently moving back into campus offices, and the arrival of students for the fall semester is eagerly anticipated, we remain committed to ensuring protection and impartiality for our diversely populated campus. Christian principles guide us to do this with patience, humanity, and dignity.

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” - John 13:34-35

Please join in praying for every member of our HSU community. I have been proactively engaging with administrators, faculty, staff and students about their concerns and ideas, and we will continue to collaborate on how we, together, can be a light of hope and of courage to one another, to our local neighborhoods, and to our world. The HSU community is and must continue to be, in word and in action, a family enlightened by Christian faith and values.

HSU Theatre Department Virtual Choir - "Something To Point To" from "Working: The Musical"

Theatre student, Jess Westman, missed his friends – a lot. When school is in session, HSU Theatre students spend hours daily hanging out in the “green room.” It’s a large, comfortable room where students study, eat, pray, and generally hang out together – a lot. But the coronavirus pandemic created sudden changes to HSU’s theatre productions, as well as the time spent together each day in the “green room.”

So, Jess started the “Green Zoom.” It’s a Zoom video conference three times each week for all theatre students. They’re times to come together and hang out and talk, just like they do during the semester. He even took pictures of all four walls of the green room so students can use them as their backgrounds.

Then Jess had another idea. Maybe the cast (especially the graduating seniors) of “Working: The Musical,” which HSU Theatre performed in the fall, could have one more performance together? So, he started planning a way for the cast to virtually sing together the finale song, “Something To Point To.” Jess compiled 14 videos of the cast individually singing their parts and edited them together.

“The song ‘Something To Point To’ is really special because it's representative of everyone - people of all backgrounds selflessly doing so much right now. All the health care and grocery workers on the front lines doing their jobs everyday so we can stay home. All the teachers, administrators, and government officials who are creatively helping and impacting their communities daily. These people do their job day-in, day-out without any complaint. It's incredible, deeply inspiring, and quite frankly, not mentioned enough right now,” Jess said.

We’re super proud of Jess’s efforts to bring his fellow students together, from afar, and give everyone some hope … something to point to. Enjoy their performance!

HSU has been busy helping the Abilene community these past few weeks, even as our faculty and students have moved to fully online classes. Recent contributions include: HSU’s Physician Assistant Program and other departments have donated personal protective equipment (PPE) to both Hendrick Medical Center’s Emergency Room and the Big Country County Medical Society Alliance. HSU also donated 100 personal bottles of hand sanitizer to Abilene Regional Medical Center. Administrators at Hardin-Simmons have purchased and provided 600 cloth masks for any faculty, staff, and students who need them.

Meanwhile, HSU leadership has been coordinating efforts with city, county, hospital, church, and other leaders to ensure every community need is met. That includes examining potential opportunities for food delivery, stocking food pantries, childcare, spiritual care, and much more. Our food service provider, Aramark, and HSU are currently providing meals to our students in Abilene even if they don’t have a meal plan. In addition to that, Aramark is prepared to supplement food needs for Hendrick or elsewhere through the HSU cafeteria.

Have you heard about our Christlieb Program? Christlieb means “Christ’s Love” in German, and it’s what founder James B. Simmons wanted to call the college that became Hardin-Simmons.
