Solidarity Against Hatred

President Walk’s May 28, 2021 statement to the MMC community.

Dear MMC community:

In recent days, neighborhoods in New York City—including the Upper East Side—have been the site of incidents of anti-Semitic violence. Marymount Manhattan College categorically condemns hatred in all its forms and the reprehensible violence it sows. Such hatred is not only repugnant to us as individual members of the MMC campus community; it is also antithetical to MMC’s core educational values. To quote the College’s Inclusivity Statement:

Marymount Manhattan College respects and honors the dignity and value of every human being. We aspire to be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community in which people with different identities—whether based on race, color, class, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic or national origin, political viewpoint, disability, physical appearance, or additional identities—are valued and respected, and where differences in intellectual interest and personal perspective are explored and embraced as central to the College’s educational mission.

While the College respects rigorous debate and disagreement, including about complex geopolitical situations, we strongly affirm our stance against hatred and bias.

The safety of all members of the MMC community is our top priority. If you or someone in our campus community has experienced an incident of bias or discrimination, we encourage you to submit a report using this form. You can also email incident@mmm.edu. If you need additional assistance or support during these troubling times, please feel to reach out to Emmalyn Yamrick, Associate Vice President for Student Engagement and Success/Dean of Students, or the Counseling and Wellness Center

Sincerely,

Kerry Walk, Ph.D.

President
