A letter from the chancellor

Chancellor Michael Aiken sent the following letter to the faculty and staff
members and students of the UI on Monday.

I am deeply disturbed about incidents over the last few weeks in which
racist fliers directed at African-American and Jewish students have been
posted in several buildings on our campus.

To the best of our knowledge, the material was brought here from outside
the university. But the content of these fliers and the way in which they
were distributed was of such an invidious nature that all should be advised
that our efforts to support and sustain a positive learning and work
environment for all members of our university community will not be
compromised by such hateful acts.


                                                Michael Aiken
                                                Chancellor
