Katie Lawson , 301-405-4622 firstname.lastname@example.org
While the university is barred by law from commenting on specific personnel cases, we can strongly affirm our commitment to supporting our vibrant Jewish community on campus, home to one of the largest Jewish student populations in the country. We have a robust scholarly portfolio of Jewish studies and academic collaborations and exchanges with Israeli institutions, and an unwavering commitment to free speech.
The university does investigate matters of discrimination and retaliation through the Office of Civil Rights and Sexual Misconduct. Diversity and inclusion are core values of our institution, and these values will and must be upheld.
