Our university is extremely diverse, and ensuring that every last person feels welcome and safe is essential to our principles and our mission. The dean has written to the school to reiterate our expectations for tolerance, civility, and respect.

We condemn any action that seeks to violate these values, and we urge our entire community to be vigilant in reporting incidents to NYU's Bias Response Hotline at 212-998-2277, bias.response@nyu.edu, or http://bit.ly/2fJIcqK.
