Subject: Condemnation of Off-Campus Party and
Affirmation of Principles of Community

Description

The matter was brought to the attention of Chancellor Marye Anne Fox and Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Penny Rue Monday night by e-mails from concerned students. Fox and Rue sent out a mass e-mail early Tuesday morning condemning the party as "a blatant disregard of our campus values" (Chen, 2010).
We strongly condemn this event and the blatant disregard of our campus values. Although the party was not a UC San Diego student-organization sponsored event, participants did include UC San Diego students and that causes us great concern.

In addition, we invite students, staff and faculty to participate in a teach-in from noon to 2 p.m. on February 24 in the Price Center East Ballroom to explore how such incidents continue to occur today and to discuss the importance of mutual respect and civility on our campus (Fox & Rue, 2010).
