Community Incident, 11/18/19

Dear Lafayette Community –

On Monday afternoon, an adult member of our Lafayette community experienced racial hate speech on our campus by another adult.  The administrative team immediately responded, investigated the incident, and worked to ensure the safety of the victim.

Lafayette will not tolerate racism at any time.  We appreciate the community member coming forward to share their experience and, while it will not erase the effects of those actions, we stand united behind them.  Furthermore, we encourage any community member to come forward if they experience any incidents of racism.  As a community, we must continue to work together to build understanding and dialogue around issues of race.      

Please let me know if you have questions or concerns.

Dr. B
