STATEMENT of SUPPORT for U-M Muslim Community
In light of the recent wave of anti-Islamic rhetoric in public discourse, the University of Michigan’s Senate Assembly hereby affirms its support for the Muslim members of the University community. Our collective commitment to equity, inclusion, and mutual respect extends to all members of the community regardless of religious affiliation. We call on all members of the University of Michigan to unequivocally oppose and condemn all attempts to discriminate against, marginalize, or denigrate students, faculty, and staff on the basis of religious faith, national origin or ethnic belonging.
