Faculty Senate Resolution

Gandhi Resolution

On January 22, 2008, the Senate unanimously
passed the following resolution.

Resolved: The Faculty Senate of the University of Rochester deplores the statements concerning Jewish identity, the Holocaust and the culture of violence made earlier this month on the Washington Post website by Arun Gandhi, president of the board of the M. K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence housed at the University.  While we recognize his right to free speech, we find the religious, ethnic, racial, and cultural stereotyping fundamental to his statements offensive, aggressive and in direct conflict with our other core values and those of the University, and therefore unacceptable.
