NU Against Hate

 

Faculty Call to Action

We believe that a diverse and inclusive Northwestern is a strong Northwestern. We condemn all acts of bigotry on our campus. Recent racist acts here are unacceptable to us, and we stand against all acts of hate and in support of all members of our community. Hate has no place at Northwestern.
