President Nowaczyk's statement on the incidents in Charlottesville

Aug 14, 2017 2:00 PM

As I'm sure many of you were, I have been greatly troubled by the news and images coming out of the University of Virginia, and especially by the hate-inspired violence that resulted in injuries and loss of life. I urge you to keep those affected in your thoughts. 

It is both ironic and disturbing that white supremacists chose to stage their rally at the university founded by the person who, despite his own flaws, wrote, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal," for it is the diversity of background, ethnicity, and ideas inspired by Thomas Jefferson's words that has made our nation great.

This is the principle we strive to mirror at Frostburg State University.
