Expressions of Hate

To: Campus Community
From: Robert J. Zimmer and Eric D. Isaacs
Subject: Expressions of Hate
Date: November 19, 2014

We have learned that the Facebook page of at least one University of Chicago student was hacked, and a message with hateful and abhorrent attacks on members of our community was posted. This is unacceptable and violates our core values. Anonymous and personal attacks that are hateful, threatening, and target people’s identity do not constitute discourse and deserve our strongest condemnation.

I am delighted to announce that Brenda L. Johnson has been appointed as Director of the Library and University Librarian for a five-year term effective January 1, 2015.   She succeeds Judith Nadler, who retired in June after nearly five decades of service to the University of Chicago.
