Our response to a controversial speaker

There are many in our community who are concerned about this Friday’s speech by Milo Yiannopoulos to be held on the Seattle campus. Although this is not the type of speaker many would invite to any UW campus, we need to fully respect a student group’s right to invite speakers of their choice, even those who are controversial or whose appearance may offend some. I am hopeful that these extreme and divisive opinions will eventually be drowned by the overwhelming majority who believe in the kind of generous and inclusive society reflected in our campus values.

I know you will agree with me that UW Bothell Huskies are exceptional. I'd like to encourage the campus community to nominate an outstanding student to be part of the second class of the Husky 100 –  students who make the most of opportunities for engagement and represent the University’s values.

Follow-up on a campus incident

I wanted to follow-up on an incident reported to us on Nov. 15 involving several Muslim women students who were allegedly approached by several men who then demanded that the women remove their hijabs. I asked our Campus Safety Director, Cham Kao, to investigate these serious allegations immediately. In the past two weeks, Cham worked to follow up on the allegations. To date, he has not been able to verify the incident. The fears raised by this incident are real, and I remain committed to create a safe campus for all.
