A Message about Charlottesville

I was deeply saddened by the violence that unfolded over the weekend in Charlottesville. The images were shocking. Our hearts are with those impacted by this terrible tragedy.

As we prepare for a new academic year, it’s important for you, as a valued member of our campus community, to know that The University of Alabama does not condone the use of hostile or racist language, or any threats of violence. We have and will continue to condemn all statements grounded in bigotry and hate. We strive to have an inclusive learning, living and working environment that encourages open and respectful dialogue, and we value each and every member of our University community.
