“I recognize and appreciate the deep reflection that each of the members of the 2018 Aztec Identity Task Force engaged in these past few months. I thank former President Roush, the University Senate, and the task force for their leadership and for their respectful and widely consultative approach to this issue, and recognize the cultural sensitivity surrounding SDSU’s historical and continued use of the Aztec moniker.
I fully support the final decision and statement made by former President Roush and look forward to working closely with on and off campus communities regarding the respectful treatment and historical accuracy of the Aztec identity and Aztec Warrior including the commitment to culturally appropriate education.”
-President Adela de la Torre
