On March 14, the University was made aware of a social media post connected to a group that describes itself as a collective of University student groups that can be read as a call for violence against individuals from specific national origins or with specific religious or ethnic identities.

The University does not tolerate language that incites violence or that is harassing or discriminatory towards a particular group of individuals. As President Shafik made clear in her December 20 statement, Columbia is committed to being a community free of discrimination and prejudice and we condemn the recent increase in antisemitism and anti-Muslim and Arab hate. Statements that call for violence are unacceptable and may warrant disciplinary action.
