Dear Students,
I am writing to give you the details of a series of events that have occurred in the law building since last August.
The first incident occurred shortly before school started in August. At that time, students discovered that someone had gouged out the eyes of a student in a photo posted on the ACLU bulletin board next to the elevator on the ground floor near the café. The person whose picture was defaced is an LGBT rights and ACLU activist. At the time, we believed that this might be a prank, but that it also might be malicious. Dean Albertson-Ploucha and I sent an email at the time letting you know that items on the ACLU bulletin board had been defaced, cautioning that such conduct was unprofessional, threatening and potentially illegal, and encouraging support for the diverse law school community.

Dean Albertson, a historian who helped develop the oral history project at Columbia University and was a teacher at the University of Massachusetts since 1965, died last Friday at his home in Longmeadow, Mass. He was 68 years old.

About three weeks ago, straight pins were stuck into the eyes of two other students (both ACLU activist, and one also an LGBT rights activist) in photographs on the same bulletin board. Given the similarity of the two events, we believed they may be linked. Dean Burnet, Dean Albertson-Ploucha and I met with the ACLU and outLaw leaders. Dean Burnett sent a strongly worded email to the entire law school community. In addition, the ACLU and outLaw students received permission for the lobby display advocating a supportive and inclusive community at the law school. Finally, students began working with the Diversity Committee and the Climate Committee to plan a College wide diversity training in the fall semester 2010.
On Tuesday morning, five 8.5×11 computer printed flyers were posted on three bulletin boards in the building – the outLaw board across from Room 108, The ACLU board next to the elevator near the café and the general bulletin board in the stairwell leading from the café. These posters expressed threats toward gays and lesbians including quoting individuals advocating violence against gays and lesbians. In addition the posters portrayed these views as those of the LDS Church and other Christians including Catholics, and implied that that the root of anti-gay sentiment and violence around the world could be found in the actions of the LDS Church. No similar flyers have been reported in any other location on campus. In light of the location of most of the postings the timing (just a week after the dean’s email), the flyers seem to be linked to the prior incidents of defacement.
