President’s Statement on August 12, 2017 Violence in Charlottesville
The University of Maryland stands in solidarity with the University of Virginia and the City of Charlottesville in our shared commitment to fundamental American values of diversity, inclusion, and mutual respect, and in our shared condemnation of the supremacist ideology of hate, bigotry, and violence.
Everyone has the right to assemble, march, and speak freely, but intimidation and assaults have no place anywhere in our democratic society.
These values are at the foundation of our educational mission as a university.
The University of Maryland community is saddened by the injuries and loss of life today. Our thoughts and prayers are for the well-being of all who were hurt and those who are in mourning.
Wallace D. Loh
President, University of Maryland
