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.

A home for our diversity center

The UW Bothell Diversity Center now has a home. It will be located on the first floor of UW-1, in space currently occupied by the Student Success Center. We have identified additional space for the important work of the Student Success Center.  As you all know, a diversity center is one of the top priorities of our Diversity Action Plan. I want to thank the  Diversity Center Steering Committee for its dedicated work. This is a major milestone for our campus.

Invitation to dialogue

This election year  has heightened emotions and fractured trusts. In an effort to support our community, I want to draw your attention to two opportunities to share and support each other today. Professor Charusheela from the School of  IAS will hold an informal gathering in Common Grounds from 3:30 to 5 p.m. This is a time to support all our students, especially our Muslim students, immigrant students and undocumented students. Secondly, Student Affairs is hosting a post-election discussion today, 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Idea Project. Please attend and share your hopes, fears and thoughts.
