ODI’s Message to UConn Community

To the UConn Community:

This week we learned of multiple incidents on the Storrs campus that targeted LGBTQIA+, Hindu, and Muslim members of our community.

We take this matter seriously and reject, denounce, and condemn these acts. Members of all of these communities contribute to the rich diversity that makes the University of Connecticut stronger as an institution. ODI values members of all of these communities and stands with them in the face of these heinous acts.

ODI is working with campus partners to address impacted communities and these incidents are being investigated by the university. We will provide updates as more information becomes available.

To the members of our community who are impacted by this senseless hatred, please know that the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, including our central office and cultural centers/programs, stands with you. Please visit ODI’s website , the Rainbow Center, the Asian American Cultural Center, the African American Cultural Center, Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center, the Women’s Center, the Islamic Center at UConn, the Dean of Students staff and Student Health and Wellness for resources and support.
