RE: Flyers Posted on Campus

We regret to inform you that a small number of flyers espousing 
offensive, racist, anti-immigration views were found yesterday in the 
vicinity of the UVM Green, posted by an as yet unknown individual or 
individuals. These abhorrent views are an assault on our values as an 
institution, as articulated in /Our Common Ground/. We condemn these 
flyers unequivocally and in the strongest possible terms. Our 
University strives to maintain a welcoming environment for _*all*_ 
members of our community.

This matter has been referred to UVM Police Services for investigation 
and to the AAEEO Office and the University Bias Response Team.

Let us be clear, _*respect and civility*_ are core values expected of 
all members of the University community and visitors to our campus.
