RE: Flyers Posted on Campus
We regret to inform you that a small number of flyers espousing offensive, racist, anti-immigration views were found yesterday in the vicinity of the UVM Green, posted by an as yet unknown individual or individuals. These abhorrent views are an assault on our values as an institution, as articulated in Our Common Ground. We condemn these flyers unequivocally and in the strongest possible terms. Our University strives to maintain a welcoming environment for all members of our community.
This matter has been referred to UVM Police Services for investigation and to the AAEEO Office and the University Bias Response Team.
Let us be clear, respect and civility are core values expected of all members of the University community and visitors to our campus.
