Please Join Me for “We R Here: A Conversation About Supporting Each Other” on Tuesday, Oct. 9

Sent Sunday, Oct. 7

During the past several weeks, our nation has been engaged in intensive discussions about many issues that reflect differences in how we perceive our nation, its direction, and ourselves. While some of those issues are influenced by our personal beliefs, it is indisputable that each of us holds an unassailable right to be free from the reality and the threat of sexual assault and harassment.

The controversy over the nomination and confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court has called attention to the heated debate over how our nation responds to allegations of sexual assault. Rutgers University–Camden, as both an institution and a community, stands squarely against sexual assault. We are firmly committed to providing every member of our campus, and every visitor to our campus, with a safe environment. We stand with victims of assault and harassment and will ensure at all times that they receive every support that they require.

Rutgers University–Camden is a community that does not shrink from provocative moments. We confront them, together, in a way that deliberately seeks out mutual understanding and common ground for as many people as possible.

To that end, I invite you to join me for “We R Here: A Conversation About Supporting Each Other,” which will be held in the Multi-Purpose Room on the main level of the Campus Center at 12:45 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9. All are welcome. We will proceed in the spirit of mutual respectfulness.

Rutgers University–Camden is a community where we support each other implicitly, and where we strive to strengthen the connections that unify us every day. I am very proud to be a part of this committed and diverse campus, where all of us – students, faculty, staff, and alumni – recognize that we belong.
