Denouncing hate

We write to denounce in strongest possible terms the recent incursion of hateful speech into our campus community. Last Saturday, a public safety officer discovered a swastika drawn on a pillar of the Graduate School of Business campus. Echoing President Marc Tessier- Lavigne’s statement and a message to the GSB community from Dean Jonathan Levin, we condemn this terrible act as wholly antithetical to our core university value of respect for all peoples, and we reject the hate and bigotry that it symbolizes. This and similar incidents targeting any of our communities bring feelings of vulnerability to many. We reaffirm our commitment to working every day to foster a community where all feel an abiding sense of belonging and well-being.
