Members of the University of Guelph,
As you may have already heard, several instances of hateful graffiti appeared on the sides of campus buildings here at the University of Guelph during early September. Shortly after one incident, president Alastair Summerlee asked students to come together to condemn these acts of hate and intolerance.
We, the student organizations, leaders, and senators of the University of Guelph want to make it very clear to members of this campus community that actions of this nature are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated. The University of Guelph is a place accepting of all types of persons regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or other various backgrounds.
We hereby condemn these actions of hate that took place on our campus. We encourage members of the University community to come forward to Campus Community Police (Ext. 52245) with any information regarding these instances of hate. We also encourage all members of the campus community to create an atmosphere of positive culture for all to enjoy.
