Commissions join together to denounce
The following is
a statement by the chairs of the three commissions, to promote
civility at the University:
commissions are deeply disturbed by the recent expressions of
hate. We consider these expressions of hate to be acts of violence
directed both at individuals and at the communities they represent.
We do not condone such behavior, and we are committed to creating
a climate that respects and celebrates diversity.
discourage future hate acts, we strongly urge coalition-building
-- not only among the groups targeted, but also with those who
want to be allies.
