Statement from President Kaler on All Campus Election Commission (ACEC) elections underway

Wednesday, March 7, 2018
With full deference to the rights of our students to participate in the democratic process, I will have no comment on the elections until the results of the voting are known. However, the inclusion on the ballot of a non-binding referendum that names Israel is exacerbating tension and fueling discrimination toward Jewish students. My statement of two years ago is as relevant today as it was then: "Our University strongly and unequivocally condemns prejudice and hostility toward Jews, as we condemn bias against any groups."
