Statement in Response to the Invasion of Ukraine by Russian Forces

We are deeply shocked and angered by the Russian military’s invasion of Ukraine and hereby express our protest. We are also seriously concerned and horrified by President Putin and other Russian government leaders’nuclear threats, and by the Russian military’s taking control of Ukrainian nuclear power plants.

Now is the time for solidarity and cooperation among citizens of different nationalities and positions. There must be no discrimination or harassment against Ukrainian and Russian citizens, against people with connections to the affected regions, and against speakers and learners of Ukrainian and Russian. It is also unacceptable under any circumstances for attacks and ostracism to take place as a result of failing to make a distinction between the government and the people of a particular country.

Now, more than ever, we will do our utmost to ensure that the university fulfills its essential role as a place where people can freely and with open minds engage in learning about the world’s regions, their histories, and measures to resolve conflicts.
