Dr Gutman is terrific; she makes me proud to be an alum. Penn, under her leadership, is clear-thinking. She'd never allow Penn to fall into the trap UC Berkeley has as to speech freedom and public safety.
A Message to the Penn CommunityFromAmy Gutmann, PresidentVincent Price, ProvostCraig Carnaroli, Executive Vice PresidentThis past weekend, some neo-Nazi flyers were found posted at several locations in the vicinity of campus. These appear to have been circulated by off-campus groups known to be bent on sowing fear and discord, and targeting campuses within our region and nationwide.Although the flyers in question are no longer posted, we think it important to take this opportunity to remind the community of our shared conviction that hatred and fear-mongering have no place at Penn.Our University strives to be a place that is safe and welcoming for all students, faculty and staff. Expressing hate or animus for any group of individuals is vile and reprehensible. We underscore our commitment to a supportive, respectful, diverse and open campus, and we encourage the exercise of free expression rights to counter misguided hate with stronger words of truth and mutual respect. We also encourage anyone who is troubled or in need of support to reach out for help.
