THE CWRU UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT GOVERNMENT

A Message from the Executive Committee: Providing Context & Condemning Hate

CWRU Student Body,

We want to provide context for the USG General Assembly on Tuesday, November 8th. The resolution on the table was authored by CWRU Students for Justice in Palestine and co-sponsored by a number of student groups across campus. The topic discussed is incredibly nuanced and should be treated as such.

All parties on Tuesday participated in a peaceful, open dialogue—we encourage you all to read the minutes and resolution attached to this email to form your own opinions.

Every student is your peer and has their own valid experiences. We implore you all to respect those who made their voices heard and to treat everyone on campus with the dignity and kindness you would like to be treated with. Our campus is motivated by community, not by divisiveness.

We recognize that this resolution has impacted the mental health of our community and want to share resources you can reach out to for support. If you have any questions, we encourage you to contact our executive board at usg-executive@case.edu.

Finally, we as the Undergraduate Student Government condemn any acts of hatred or discrimination towards any group on campus.

Sincerely,

USG Executive Committee
