Our hearts go out today to the victims of the terror attacks in Brussels, their families and the people of Belgium. While Washington and Lee does not have any students studying at programs based in Belgium, we will continue to monitor the situation and be in touch with our students abroad.
Dear Members of the Washington and Lee Community,
Early this morning we discovered an act of vandalism at the Sustainability House on East Nelson Street. The vandalism consisted of spray-painted graffiti on three doors of the house and on four student cars nearby. The graffiti included anti-gay sentiments directed at an individual student.
The Office of Public Safety and the Lexington Police Department were notified and conducted an investigation that led to the identification of a student suspect earlier this afternoon. We understand that charges are pending at this time. In addition, it is our understanding that this was an isolated act carried out by one individual.
In addition to expressing our gratitude to our Public Safety officers and the LPD for their work on this matter, I also want to thank all of the students who came forward to assist in the investigation and to express their concern for this disrespectful, irresponsible act.
I encourage all members of the Washington and Lee community to use this occasion to rededicate ourselves to those values that have always defined us — especially the moral obligation to treat everyone with respect at all times and under all conditions. We must never condone intolerance.
Students, staff and faculty will gather at 5 p.m. today in the Commons Living Room to show support and solidarity.
Sidney Springfield Evans
Vice-President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
