University Statement on 'White Student Union' Facebook Page

November 23, 2015

The George Washington University is committed to fostering a welcoming and safe environment for every member of the GW community. The university has been targeted by a new Facebook page representing itself as a white student union. Other universities around the country have seen similar pages being created in the last week in what appears to be an orchestrated effort. This group is not a recognized student organization, nor does it in any way reflect the values of the university community, which embraces our rich diversity of students, faculty and staff. While the university recognizes the right to free speech, any attempts to intimidate or discriminate against any members of the university community will not be tolerated. We have reported the page to Facebook and requested that they take it down as soon as possible.
