Message from President Price Regarding New Zealand Mosque Attacks

President Price: Duke will always stand on the side of openness, acceptance, and inclusion, and we resoundingly condemn these horrific attacks.

Dear Duke Colleagues,

 

I join other members of the Duke community in my shock and sadness about the horrific shootings in New Zealand. I am particularly dismayed that they appear to have been deliberate attacks on the Muslim community — the latest in an abhorrent trend of white supremacist violence around the world.

I want to assure those students, faculty, and staff from New Zealand and members of the Duke Muslim community that we stand by them in this great moment of pain. Support is available to all that need it; more information can be found at DukeReach.

Duke will always stand on the side of openness, acceptance, and inclusion, and we resoundingly condemn these horrific attacks.

 

Vincent E. Price
President
