    Northeastern Hillel thanks President Aoun and Northeastern University for their quick action and firm stance against the anti-Semitic incident that took place at the Northeastern University School of Law on Friday, November 7th.

    President Aoun recognized the potential damage being caused to the fabric of our community by this cowardly incident and acted swiftly to rectify the situation, clarifying Northeastern's values unambiguously.

    The swift condemnation of this hate crime by Northeastern's administration should set the standard for university responses elsewhere. While we celebrate our differences, it is only through constructive engagement that we will be able to establish bonds for the future. President Aoun recognizes this fundamental truth and seeks to create an environment where respect of diversity is fundamental, while creating an environment of fear and intimidation is prohibited.

    Responses like President Aoun's support our students, dramatically improving their experience in the face of an act of hatred, designed to intimidate and isolate. The entire Northeastern community is better equipped to support one another because of President Aoun's decisive leadership.

    Letter from Northeastern President Joseph Aoun

     
    To the Members of the Northeastern Community:
     
    An incident has occurred on our campus that is completely unacceptable and an affront to our entire community and the values of our university. This afternoon, swastikas were drawn on two flyers posted in Dockser Hall publicizing an event, sponsored by the Alliance for Israel at Northeastern and the Louis D. Brandeis Center, scheduled to take place Monday at the School of Law.
     
    Let there be no doubt: we have absolutely no tolerance for anti-Semitism, prejudice, and hate crimes of any kind, including this incident. The Northeastern University Police Department is in possession of evidence related to this act and is actively investigating the case.
     
    Let me also affirm my support for all groups, including the organizers of Monday’s event, to operate and speak freely in an atmosphere of mutual respect and understanding, and free from intimidation. Northeastern is a community that embraces diversity in all its forms, and we will always cherish and uphold this value with vigor and determination. We will not accept anything less.
     
    Sincerely,
     
    Joseph E. Aoun
    President
