Through civil debate, we can tackle difficult issues (Updated)

Ana Mari Cauce

This week, UWPD obtained credible information that groups from outside the UW community are planning to join the event with the intent to instigate violence. For the safety of campus visitors and others not associated with the events, several organizations have cancelled or postponed their campus events that day and access to Red Square will be limited. Your safety is important to us and we are taking precautions to ensure the Patriot Prayer event unfolds as peacefully as possible. However, I encourage you to avoid Red Square, and the surrounding area from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday to ensure your own personal safety.

I was deeply saddened today to learn of the passing of Floyd Jones, a dear friend, alumnus and tireless supporter of the University of Washington. Floyd embodied the notion that philanthropy can change lives and make the world a better place.

Understanding your resources to prevent and address sexual misconduct

Ana Mari Cauce

It is our obligation to make sure that UW students understand the standards we hold them to as responsible members of the University community. These standards reflect our values, our policies, and state and federal law, including Title IX, which prohibits sexual harassment, sexual assault and other forms of discrimination on the basis of sex. For our faculty and staff, it’s also important to be aware of these policies and the role we all play in upholding these responsibilities.
