Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
Recent events on campus have challenged our understanding of Smith as an institution founded on diversity and respect. It is time for us to come together to address our concerns, discuss ideas for future action, and recommit ourselves to creating a campus climate that supports every student in pursuing her education fully. An all-campus meeting will be held on Monday, April 16, at 4:15 p.m., in John M. Greene Hall.
Athletic practices will be canceled. I ask that academic and administrative offices be closed so that all can attend the meeting. If it is essential that an office be staffed for incoming telephone calls, the head of the department should designate one person to remain in the office.
I urge students, faculty and staff to make every effort to attend.
Carol T. Christ
