The following email was sent to the Barnard community on November 29, 2018:


Dear Members of the Barnard Community:

As you may have heard by now, late yesterday the office of a Teachers College professor was vandalized with swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs. This horrific hate crime, which is under investigation, is an act of aggression that affects the entire University community and goes against everything that we believe in and stand for.  

To our colleagues at Teachers College, we offer our support and reiterate our commitment to ensuring a safe, respectful, and inclusive place for each and every member of our community, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or national origin.

Please know that we are readily available for those who need support. Additional resources can be found on our website.
