ALL FACULTY, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO

SUBJECT:    Statement regarding Campus Graffiti

The following statement was issued on Monday, April 11, 2016. Because we have learned it has not reached all of the campus community, it is being distributed now to all of UC San Diego.

A series of incidents occurring on college and university campuses across the United States have reflected our nationís current divisive political climate. Unfortunately, late Friday evening graffiti promoting the deportation of undocumented immigrants and the construction of a wall on the border of Mexico was discovered chalked on UC San Diegoís campus sidewalks. This graffiti runs counter to our campus values of equity and inclusion. We value diversity and respect for all cultures.

UC San Diego is steadfast in the commitment to our Principles of Community (http://ucsd.edu/explore/about/principles.html) which reflect a collective dedication to a campus where we uphold each individualís right to dignity, justice and respect. We affirm the Principles of Community as the guide for all campus citizens as we move forward to foster the best working and learning environment.
