Statement on Today’s Student-Led Event

December 6, 2023

A student-led event within the School of Social Work building proceeded without permission, after being canceled. We communicated to the student organizers that this event could not be held at the school because they did not follow protocol. As a result, we prevented access to the classroom the students intended to use. Despite clear direction that the event was not permitted, a group of students moved to host the event in the public lobby of our school. School and University administrators informed the students of the possibility of disciplinary action and urged them to disperse, which they did. The matter is under review under University procedures.
